CES 2012 - We had a little treat today while visiting GIGABITE. Colin Brix stopped by with a hand full of new motherboards right from the R&D labs. We can't say too much about them but you can start to see how these will eventually become XXX-UD3, XXX-UD5 and so on.

Being the storage editor here at TweakTown I started looking closer at the storage options on these next generation motherboards. SATA III all over the place, check! Intel motherboards today are limited to just two SATA III ports but that will be a thing of the past really soon. What is even more impressive though is that most of these boards include either an mSATA or mini PCIe slot for HDD cache capabilities. We still need to determine if these boards are using mSATA or mini PCIe but will be digging for the information this evening. With OCZ showing their new Kilimanjaro, a joint OCZ and Marvell controller that uses mini PCIe 3.0 we have to wonder if mSATA is going to be replaced for Intel SRT with mini PCIe 3.0.

I'll update this post when I know more.
