Review of Linux Compatibility

The ASUS U3S6 is a PCI-Express card (Gen2) and provides two USB 3.0 (external) and two Serial-ATA 600 (6Gb/s) ports (intern).

The card is supported by Linux, e.g. since SUSE 11.3 (Linux Kernel 2.6.34.7-0.7-default). However,at least Linux kernel 3.0 is recommended for the usage of the USB 3.0 ports.

The card is recognized by the kernel in the following way:

03:00.0 USB Controller [0c03]: NEC Corporation uPD720200 USB 3.0 Host Controller [1033:0194] (rev 03)
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:8413]
        Kernel driver in use: xhci_hcd

If a USB-3.0 hard disk is connected, the card will be initialized in the follwoing way:
