[QUOTE=mciahel;2523834]But current AMD chipsets have better support for USB3 controllers (unlike Intel who managed to introduce some bottlenecks).
Plus AMD has built-in Sata3 support.
Yeah AMD boards have PCIe 1x 2.0 meaning you can get full speed out of the cards, Intel have only PCIe 1x 1.0 so you are bottlenecked.
AMD are fantastic and innovators with every component they make (and that is including ATI graphics), except for the most critical component; the CPU which they are way behind Intel.
Intel are too arrogant, costly and like to bring out new CPU’s which immediately make their motherboards obsolete.
I am just hoping AMD get things right with Bulldozer as if so there is no need to go to Intel for some time.
