    USB 3.0 function

    hadab2008

      Good day Gentlemen,

       

       

      I'm trying to upgrade my Windows 7 x64 Home Premium to Windows 8 Pro. When I used the Assistance Upgrade, it stated that I have to uninstall Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver as will as some pages from your support website.

       

       

      I searched about this driver and I noticed that so many people have a problem with their USB 3.0 ports after upgrading to Windows 8 ! As they described, when they uninstalled Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver and upgraded to Windows 8, they lost the file transferring speed of USB 3.0 ports and it starts functioning as the normal USB 2.0 ports !

       

       

      My question is .. If I uninstall Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver, Am I going to lose the original file transferring speed of my USB 3.0 ports ?

       

       

      Your support is highly appreciated  .

       

       

       

       

      Regards
