If you are lucky enough to have a desktop or a notebook with USB 3.0 ports, you probably have two ports at the most. The reason for this is that the host controllers typically only support a pair of the USB 3.0 ports.

VIA Labs has announced that it will be showing off a new host controller at Computex that is called the VL800. The VL800 supports the simultaneous use of four USB 3.0 ports.

 

VIA is aiming the host controller at a number of uses. The host will be used in desktop and notebook computers, server motherboards, docking stations, and expansion cards for adding USB 3.0 ports to notebooks and desktops. The host controller is backwards compatible with older USB specs.
