    USB3 from Z77 Intel chipset - driver issues, or ...?


    New driver needed to increase USB3 performance in Z77 chipset. Performance is really low compared to same port in Win7, but for some reason the driver from Windows 7, won't install!! (Is not compatible it says).

    Yes. It won't install as it claims to have compatible problems with Windows 8.
    Can it be forced to install (with succes)?

    It can not be as far as I am aware of. I am having the same issue with the same Intel USB chipset on my laptop.. very slow performance where-as in Windows 7 it was fine. I posted something to Intels Forum and trying to get an Intel Rep to give me some ideas on what to do or maybe when they are planning to release a USB 3 updated driver for Windows 8.

    ASUS has just issued a Win8 USB3 driver for their boards. I have their Z77 chipset board and the driver works great. Go to www.asus.com and pick a Z77 board (I have the P8Z77-V PRO/Thunderbolt) and go to downloads.

    I don't see any USB 3 driver for Windows 8 x64?

    Under "OS:" select the down arrow, then select "Windows 8 64 bit". Scroll down to "Utilities". Click the - sign and scroll down to "USB3_Boost for Windows8". This is the driver you want. Click "Global" to download.
