Buffalo intros USB 3.0 ExpressCard adapter

Japan's Buffalo on Wednesday introduced its Express Card USB 3.0 adapter, the IFC-EC2U3/UC, that will bring the 5Gbps transfer speeds of the new standard to notebook users. The 34mm card has two external USB 3.0 ports that will also be backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

In comparison, USB 2.0 only offers 480Mbps peak transfer speeds. The Buffalo USB 3.0 card is compatible with Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit, as well as Vista and XP. The Buffalo USB 3.0 adapter is due out before month's end in Japan, priced at the equivalent of $60. There is no word if or when the product will come to the US market.
