USB3 will soon replace USB2 in the same way as not so long ago USB2 replaced the original USB1 standard.
Certainly when with a next hardware revision round USB 3.0 becomes available standard with future chipsets deployed, USB 3.0 will be considered. As of now, neither the ICH9 (actual ARM models) nor Marvell Orion SoC (ARM) do directly support USB 3.0.derek324 wrote:Any indication when we can expect first updated USB3 model(s)?

It is much easier to solder some ready-made chips to a converter enclosure (certainly many Asian manufacturers will pop-up daily with new enclosures), other than doing a perfectly performing system with an integration worth the expected USB 3.0 performance. As of now, just gluing a USB 3.0 controller does not make much sense - especially when we are facing Serial-ATA developments, too.
A good posting by Q is in the forum already.
