WORLD’S FASTEST USB 3.1 PERFORMANCE WHILE SAVING UP TO 50% POWER
MSI is proud to be in a continuing and close relationship with ASMedia in helping develop the next generation USB controllers. Its latest addition, the brand-new ASMedia ASM3142 USB 3.1 controller, is the world’s fastest USB solution and will be the new standard for super-fast data transfer over USB. While the current Lightning ASMedia ASM2142 USB 3.1 Gen2 controller, running at PCIe Gen3 x2 (16Gb/s), already offers the fastest USB 3.1 performance in the market, the next generation Lightning ASMedia ASM3142 USB 3.1 Gen2 controller chip enhances performance and achieves higher energy efficiency, consuming at least 50% less energy than former USB solutions.
