2 ready-to-use USB3.0 Ports on the backpanel
2 USB3.0 internal Ports via 20Pin Header, which are usable with a Front-USB-Adapter
reliable Via VL800 Chipset
Turbo-Mode via driver utility
none so far
I already had some USB3.0 PCIe/Expresscard Controllers, but they have the old NEC/Renesas Host-Chip which isn't very reliable. These cards have often problems with 2.5" USB3.0 harddrives, i/o errors after a few minutes or won't work at all.
This card here has the Via VL800 4Port Host-Controller and is working perfectly.
I could get a read-speed of 100MB/s with a SanDisk USB3.0 Stick, and after enabling the Turbo-Mode in the driver of the controller i got 125MB/s in real file-transfer and 185MB/s in CrystalDiskMark.
To activate Turbo-Mode you may have to download the newest drivers from the Via website, which has a very slow downloadspeed.
a very nice fast usb3.0 pcie controller card with the ability to connect front usb-ports.
