So, I was reading the manual on this ASUS P8Z77-V LE ( motherboard, thinking about purchasing it for my new system build, and came across page 2-39, where it says (paraphrasing) that USB 3.0 is only usable in Windows, due to limitations set forth by Intel with the chipset ports and ASMedia with the USB 3.0 controller ports.

Now, I'm wondering is this true? Are these ports essentially dead when used with Linux?
