Newegg looks similar to Conrad

http://conrad.de/ce/de/product/973583/2-PORT-USB-30-PCI-EXPRESS-CONTROLLER

To compare more I moved mouse over picture in each, 
  when a magnified version spring up & pans with mouse, but a problem
  then: one can only hover the mouse over ne pictures at the time,
  not both.  (unless anyone knows some trick with X or firefox to
  freeze one ? )
  
  One couldnt even use 2 different browsers & ^Z as one still have
  to pan mouse to controlling Xterm before hitting Control Z.
  
  So one would have to look at source of bpth pages & try to download
  both larger pictures (if that's possible & it's not some live java thing,
  I dont know, haven't looked).

It's not identical. 
  The white paint of the silk screen on PCB ends with:
        Conrad.de  :  8-00B MADE IN TAIWAN      (no preceeding 1122 )
        Newegg.com : 08-00D MADE IN TAIWAN      (+ preceeding 1122 )
Electricaly I don't know.

My posting 
  http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-usb/2012-June/011283.html
Lists all numbers off top of chips, (it was very hard to read one
chip, even with magnifying glass & good light, I wouldnt want to
try to read pcture on newegg web page, but people have my IC numbers
for Conrad).

Newegg.com page has:
  "With a built-in SATA power connector, each USB port can deliver
  up to 900mA of power"
That's too low, should be 1.0 Amp I believe for USB3 spec.

http://www.conrad.com/ce/en/product/973583/ (english page BTW) clicks to
http://www.produktinfo.conrad.com/datenblaetter/950000-974999/973583-an-01-ml-2_PORT_USB_3_0_PCI_EXPRESS_C_de_en_fr_nl.pdf
Page 2 says:
 "each USB port of the plug-in card can deliver a current of up to
 1.5A (SATA power unit must be connected to the plug-in card!),"

Cheers,
Julian
