Um perhaps some research would help things.

The reason they are withholding USB 3.0 is so that it can be finalized, apparently to avoid incidents that occurred with USB 1.0.

Always a possibility. This is what I posted

We've seen some early USB 3.0 gear here and there, but it looks like the successor to everyone's favorite serial bus is off to a rocky start, with AMD and NVIDIA claiming that Intel is withholding crucial specifications necessary to develop an open host controller. Although Intel apparently already has working silicon, it's not willing to share -- so AMD and NVIDIA are working on a competing spec that will be introduced alongside Intel's. The first meeting of the alternate spec group is scheduled for next week, according to sources, but there could be problems with this diverging roadmap down the line: sources close to Intel say that the only reason the specs haven't been released is that they're not done, and that Intel doesn't want incompatible chipsets based on different versions of the spec out there. Sure, sure, but we're certain both sides are playing a little fast and loose with reality here -- good thing all these fools have until 2010 to get this sorted.
It would seem that this is what people read

Looks like they are trying to kill off their competitors the last little bit.

Amd with Ati + Nvidia if they combine they could make the perfect fusion chip

Or supply more material for anti-trust litigation.

I definitely wouldn't be surprised if AMD used this against them or nVidia teamed up with AMD in the case.

Almost, The fight is that Intel will withhold the information and technology nVidia would need for their chipsets to support Nahalem. The price Intel is asking in exchange is for nVidia to give them the license to use SLI on their Chipsets.

nVidia is in a terrible spot. If they give SLI to intel, they will loose market share to them, possibly loosing the Intel market all together. If they do not give up SLI, their ability to market motherboards will be gone in a year or so due to inability to support newer Intel chips.
