We've seen cables, controllers, drivers and years of promises, and it looks like we now finally have some pictures of the first official USB 3.0 motherboard out in the wild. That milestone comes courtesy of ASUS, which looks to have gone all out (or as far out as motherboards can go) with its new P6X58 Premium model. As you can see above, it packs a pair of easily identifiable USB 3.0 ports and three standard USB 2.0 ports, along with accommodations for a Core i7 processor, six DDR3 memory slots, three PCI-Express 2.0 slots, and plenty of other standard fare. Still no word on a price or release date, unfortunately, and the folks at Xfastest unsurprisingly weren't able to provide any benchmarks or the like, considering that there isn't much in the way of actual USB 3.0 gear to test it with just yet.

USB 3.0 is silly. It's got what, 9 wires? I read that a USB 3.0 cable is as thick as a LAN cable. Plus the extra wiring is going to make devices all that more expensive.

USB 2.0 is fine for 90% of applications. For the rest, just use firewire 800/1600/3200

SATA isn't ubiquitous. IDE isn't even. Nothing is.

Computers and ubiquitous don't mix.
