Intel have officially launched their new Haswell processors, something you can read about in our review. Something a little more interesting though, which comes from in the Netherlands, is that Haswell is seeing issues with USB 3.0.




They've done some very, very extensive testing and confirmed there are USB 3.0 issues with the 8-series chipset. They tested 22 USB 3.0 drives, with 14 of them experiencing issues and were unable to stay connected when a Haswell system woke back up from standby. have an insane round up of 33 Haswell-based motherboards if you'd like to do some weekend reading!
