The following motherboards use ASMedia ASM1142 controller that provides support for 2x USB 3.1 ports which complies with USB-IF’s 10 Gb/s transfer rate standard. As always the Type-A connector has backwards compatibility while Type-C is useful for connecting newer devices (including smartphones) with the new reversible cables. It’s noteworthy that some motherboard makers who have talked about USB 3.1 are actually providing a standalone USB 3.1 PCIe x1 card.

Intel Z97 Chipset based MSI Z97 Gaming 6 uses a single USB 3.1 Type C connector on the rear I/O.
