Native USB 3.0 means driver is provided by Intel. So better driver support. Performance should be about the same, after all they are all using USB 3.0.

Honestly I wouln'd worry too much about. Unless you plan to use USB 3.0 port with mouse/keyboard/joystick/controller on it, then native USB 3.0 might be "slightly" better in terms of latency. As native USB 3.0 means USB to DMI directly instead of USB to PCIe to DMI.

I think he meant PCI-E 3.0 because you have to have a Z68 Gen3 mobo to support Ivy and PCI-E 3.0.Performance wise,i would say native x16/x16 on higher end mobos in SLI instead of x8/x8 on Z68 Gen3's.

There is nothing about native for PCIe. PCIe 3.0 controller is on CPU in the first place, so PCIe 3.0 has nothing to do with chipset.

still nothing to do with the conversation at hand, and asrock's marketing is old and not so true when ASUS says the same thing as GB did.

I do believe tho that not having a separate controller will make things better, as the latency should be lower and performance probably higher as all of these USb 3.0 controllers are all different on different boards and have different performance. Still tho you prob don't have a device that would be so limited by any of them.
