USB3.0 (Device) IP Core is ideal for use in a USB3.0 supported device system which require high bandwidth up to 5.0Gbps. This IP Core will process almost all USB3.0 protocols by hardware. It achieves processing by low-end CPU. This IPcore provide link layer, protocol layer. Physical layer interfaces to PHY chip by TI. DesignGateway provide 1-hour limited sof file for Intel FPGA evaluation boards. You can evaluate on Intel FPGA development kits before purchasing the IP core. More information from here
