USB 3.0 hardware was spotted in droves at CES in January and more of the gear will be coming to market this year. To take advantage of USB 3.0 you will need either a new computer or an add-in card for your existing machine.

Belkin has announced its new line of USB 3.0 gear for computer users that will all ship in the US in April. The line includes a new USB 3.0 PCIe add-in card selling for $79.99. A SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ExpressCard for notebooks will sell for the same $79.99 price point. Both will support up to 127 USB devices with enough hubs attached.

Belkin will also be offering a full line of USB 3.0 cables. The cables will come in 4 or 8-foot lengths with A-B or Micro to B connectors for $39.99 and $49.99. It's hard to stomach paying $50 for a cable when we all have gobs of USB cables lying around.
