Well, i was thinking that if Kingston sent me a new HyperX 3K drive, i would get started on it as soon as i finish benching for Part 3 of the GTX vs HD 7970, 2GB vs. 3GB memory face-off
The PCIe cards using the 1x or 4x PCIe slots are no disadvantage over native USB 3.0 support except that there will be no "caching", i already have a z68MB that is PCIe 3.0 with a IB CPU and a BIOS update also.
-- i also have FX-8150/AM3+ with native USB 3.0 support; but no one appears interested in that platform
But if i am going to do the review next week, i will need to buy an inexpensive add-in USB 3.0 card. i doubt that Kingston wants to wait a month. AND in a month, i can compare the old platform vs the newer.
