I just got back from Best Buy to buy a usb 3.0 cable. They didn't have any. The top tech person there said that if the port wasn't blue then it wasn't 3.0. He was very adament about that. He questioned about Dell doing false advertising.
I looked in Device Manager and found:
Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller, and
Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Root Hub
No other references to usb 3.0
No reference to XHCI controllers
My transfer rate is 48MB/s. With real usb 3.0, shouldn't I be getting more than 6GB/s?
