GamersNexus: "At last, the great USB connection conundrum is solved! As for the actual USB 3.1 demonstration, MSI had a working board for us at the show. USB 3.1 has been demonstrated on prototype boards in the past, but the X99A Gaming 9 ACK Edition has two USB 3.1 ports that use the type-A interface, and it’s ready to hit the shelves in February. MSI’s demonstration showed us transfer speeds on the standard USB 3.0 ports first. Then using the same equipment, but moving to the USB 3.1 ports, they showed us the improvements."
