ASUS Brings Two USB 3.1-Enabled Motherboards to Computex 2014

Just like its rival MSI, ASUS has decided to showcase a little USB advancement at Computex 2014. To do that the company put on display not one but two LGA1150 motherboards (probably Z97-based) featuring USB 3.1 support courtesy of an ASMedia controller.

The USB 3.1 ports on ASUS' boards - codenamed Quicksilver (ATX) and Shadowcat (mini ITX), offer maximum transfer rates of 10 Gbps and up to 100 W for connected devices. Shadowcat also packs two DDR3 memory slots, four SATA ports, one PCI-Express x16 slot, Gigabit Ethernet, 5.1 channel audio, and D-Sub, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.

Apart from USB 3.1, Quicksilver features four memory slots, one SATA Express, one M.2 and six SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, three PCI-Express x16 slots, dual Gigabit Ethernet, 7.1 channel Crystal Sound 2 audio, 802.1ac WiFi, plus DisplayPort and HDMI connectors. ASUS is likely to release its first USB 3.1-supporting motherboards later this year.
