    Im also noticing slow read/write times using USB3 devices under W8 but i was under the impression we (Z77 owners) needed the Intel USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller drivers for windows 8 to get full speed.
    I've been checking the Asus website since last weekend but nothing. I'll give the USB boost utility a go but im pretty sure thats not really the answer, although if it works thats great news

Anybody know of a beta-driver for USB3 and a Z77 Intel chipset? (on a MSI mobo) My USB3 is so sloow compared to same port in Windows 7. My daily backup of files, drawings and reports takes a LOT of time. This might be a windows 8 killer, if Intel and MS can't solve it.
