Although there are extremely high expectations for Intel Corp.’s next-generation microprocessor platform code-named Haswell, the platform will not be completely free of issues. According to a media report, the world’s largest chipmaker has problems with the USB 3.0 implementation in its upcoming 8-series core-logic sets.

Intel reportedly informs its partners that when a PC system with Core i-series “Haswell” inside wakes from S3 sleep mode, it experiences issues with devices connected through USB 3.0, according to Hardware.info web-site. Intel seemingly defines the issue only as a nuisance for end users, as there would be no serious unpleasant consequences, such as data loss.

"While we do not comment on rumors about future products I can tell you that Intel remains on track for the first 4th generation Intel Core processors to come to market starting in mid-2013," said Kristof Sehmke, a spokesman for Intel.

A quick fix for the problem, which may result in blank PDF pages or failure to resume playback, is already known: a restart of application.

Almost all PC platforms launch with certain limitations or issues. In case they are well-documented and expected, they do not bring any harm to the end-users.

When there's no competition, a product that "mostly works" is "good enough", right? Anyone else tired of Intel's USB3 issues and feet dragging?
