The Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO), today announced the availability of the Serial ATA Revision 2.6 specification. This updated specification combines the previously published SATA Revision 2.5 material with new feature definitions and enhancements that will enable developers to integrate the technology into new applications.

Benefits include:  • Internal Slimline cable and connector – enables SATA optical drives to be included in smaller form factors
• Internal Micro SATA connector for 1.8" HDD – facilitates SATA hard drives in Ultra Mobile PC applications
• Mini SATA Internal/ External Multilane cable and connector – provides access for internal use in high bandwidth backplane designs, and also external uses in eSATA or xSATA protocols for high bandwidth external storage enclosures
• Native Command Queuing (NCQ) Priority enhancement – adds priority to data in complex workload environments
• NCQ Unload enhancement – permits robust use in laptop environments where the drive may be dropped

it wont help, i can change it to 100hz and more, but when i'm playing DOTA , counter strike RPGS, source the hz is 60, this is because the monitor hz is not locked :/

No that is because the drivers are set to allow applications to over-ride, for Source you can add -freq xx to your startup commands (xx being the monitor rr)

To disable the over ride in the new NV control center you need to go into Manage 3D settings and do each program individually :(
Also be sure that your monitor can indeed to 100hz, alot of TFTs will only do up to about 75

Any luck on this yet? I really really really need the Vista x64 usb polling rate set to 500hz it makes so much difference.
I've searched everywhere but its very hard to find one that works.

I've now uploaded both x32 and x64 versions of usbport.sys in 500hz and 1000hz configurations to the original thread located here:
