Gigabyte Technology, one of the world’s largest makers of mainboards, said on Monday that it had shipped over a million of motherboards that support USB 3.0 interface. According to the manufacturer, this makes Gigabyte the largest supplier of USB 3.0 equipment to date.

"Reaching the one million USB 3.0 products mark is a testament to Gigabyte’s strategy of innovating for the high-end product category, and then driving those innovations down through our product line quicker than our competitors in order to boost sales volumes," said Henry Kao, aenior vice president of motherboard business unit at Gigabyte.

Gigabyte’s SuperSpeed USB motherboards support USB 3.0 technology through an onboard NEC µPD720200 host controller – the world's first (and only to date) USB Implementer’s Forum certified SuperSpeed USB controller. NEC has shipped a total of three million host controllers since beginning mass production in September, 2009. With one million units shipped, mainboards from Gigabyte now account for 33% of the total USB 3.0 host products currently available in the market.

The range of Gigabyte’s USB 3.0 motherboards are based on Intel X58, P55, H57, H55, P45 and P43 chipsets, as well as AMD 790FX, 790X, 770, 785G chipsets. Other mainboard makers, including Asustek Computer, also offer mainboards with USB 3.0 support.
