As a photography guy I have a lot of UHS-I compatible SD cards with 95MB/s. I know that since 2012 macbook air modell there is USB3 built in, but I heared that the sdcardreader is connected to a USB2 host internally and therefore not getting USB3 speeds with the built-in sdcardreader.


Is this also the case with the Macbook Air Haswell 2013 i5 modell or do we have USB3 enabled sdcard reader built into it now?
