Storage solutions and HBA (Host Bus Adapter) specialist HighPoint Technologies just let us know about its new RocketU 1144A, which is a four-port USB 3.0 add-in card. That in and of itself isn't terribly exciting, but it just so happens that this particular model is the industry's first/only four-port PCI Express Gen 2 x4, 20Gbps USB 3.0 SuperSpeed HBA. That's right, this thing packs four dedicated USB 3.0 ports, each one capable of a full 5Gbps for 20Gbps total.
$89, kinda expensive imo unless I have a real need for it.
Shhhhh!

I doubt there will be any pci express add in cards that will be sporting thunderbolt, you're pretty much stuck with intel also with Thunderbolt.
