Security for virtualized datacentres

IDF We're not expecting to see SuperSpeed USB devices shown off in significant numbers until next year, but a few have turned up at Intel Developer Forum.

At the top of the list is Point Grey's 1080p HD webcam that uses the 5Gb/s USB 3.0 bus to stream the 60f/s picture data uncompressed.

Point Grey's camera uses USB 3.0 PCI Express-to-USB 3.0 chippery from semiconductor company Fresco Logic.
