ASUS U3S6 CARD DRIVER

This trifecta of chips is literally the same setup Asus use on their latest motherboards to offer USB 3. This really does seal the deal as both synthetic and real world tests have consistently shown the Asus U3S6 to be a faster interface card. You simply have to be able to source out a low profile bracket which is not included or do without a bracket all together to use it in a smaller footprint HTPC system for example. This does make this card extremely versatile as many consumers wanting to upgrade a system to USB 3. With that being said, if you are also looking for SATA 6 capabilities, this card is not an optimal solution unless your existing motherboard is on the extremely short Asus approved motherboard list. While it is longer then most, it still is only a single slot solution as all the controller chips are considered low power, with no bulky heatsinks required to keep them cool.
