Fight! Intel vs AMD & nVidia over USB 3.0

There’s a new public tussle brewing between AMD and Intel, though in this case, it probably won’t be settled in a courtroom. AMD and NVIDIA are both angry with the chip giant for allegedly withholding information on the USB 3.0 open host controller. Intel, for its part, insists that it has done nothing wrong and is following the exact same set of procedures that were used during the development of USB 2.0. It has been erroneously reported in some publications that AMD and NVIDIA are angry about unreleased information on the USB 3.0 specification itself (which promises speeds of up to 4.7Gbps), but this does not appear to be the case. The flash point on this issue is over access to all information concerning the open host controller, not the USB 3.0 specification itself. (link)
