VIA Technologies launched the “VIA VL700 USB 3.0-SATA Controller,” a highly integrated single chip solution that allows users to connect SATA hard disk drive, solid state drive, optical disc drive, and Blu-ray disc players devices to their PC via new USB 3.0 (SuperSpeed USB) specification ports, with data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps. VIA VL700 supports both SATA 3Gbps and 1.5Gbps data transfer rates and also Native Command Queuing (NCQ), which allows HDDs/SSDs to internally optimize the order in which received read and write commands are executed, thereby increasing performance. Additionally, data transfer to and from SATA-based DVD and Blu-ray Disc players is supported.
