USB3 Hardware Upgrade?

Want to upgrade my existing USB2 hardware to USB3.

Searched the forum but found nothing.

Did not know where to ask for help concerning this?  Since RAW files are the largest am guessing that this may be the best place.

Am interested in all suggestions from others who have done this.

Thanks

Ken

If you upgrade your PC it will  make no difference when transferring files from your camera as the connection speed is a function of the lowest speed device.   In this case,  it would be your camera.

Use a card reader like "Delock USB 3.0 Card Reader 3.5 65 in 1" (91700) or "Delock USB 3.0 Card Reader 3.5 63 in 1" (91725). I have a 91700 one and the transfer speed is exactly the SD cards speed.

mastodon,

"Use a card reader"  Yes I use a USB2 reader. 

Thanks for the "Delock USB 3.0 Card Reader 3.5 65 in 1" (91700) or "Delock USB 3.0 Card Reader 3.5 63 in 1" (91725) tips.

Checked and both are PC mount.

Forgot to mention I am looking for a portable USB3 SD card reader. 

Like my Sandisk MicroMate SD / SDHC Memory Card Reader (SDDR-113).

Everyone,

Have been trying to do my USB3 Homework. 

Recently came across this on USB3.1 demo
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/09/21/usb_3_point_one_demo_shows_impressive_performance/

Did some more checking and found "USB 3.1 demo hits nearly 900MB/s (video)"
http://www.guru3d.com/news_story/usb_3_1_demo_hits_nearly_900mbs_%28video%29.html

Would be Very Interested to find out if there are any existing products that meet all the USB 3.1 specs!!!

Thanks again for all the help
