I thought the note 3 was going to be fast since it has usb 3.0 and all that?

I connected it to my front usb 3.0 port and it takes 8 and a half minutes to transfer a 2GB movie onto the sdcard which is a sandisk sdxc class 10 64GB stick while it takes 1-2 minutes when i connect it to my usb 3.0 card reader... how come it's so darn slow through the phone?

The motherboard im using is a Asus maximus VI hero

Is the phone in USB 3.0 MTP mode?
Also, the data is directed through phone motherboard, longer route means longer time (data transfer speed is also affected by the read/write capability of the SD slot on the phone).

Copy it onto the internal and you will notice how much faster it is. With usb 3 mode selected.

There should be some issue, either with your SD card or phone. Test copying same file into internal memory and then into card by usb 3.

I donít have USB 3 in my PC and I always use 2.0 but transferring a 2GB video file by usb 2.0 never took over 2-3 minutes. By OTG cable from flash drive to sd card, same time. Even over wifi it doesnít take that much time.

So try formatting the SD card and then input all data and test. I donít think this will resolve, and you much check with Samsung service center.

MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) is the mode to transfer data between PC and phone.

When you connect the phone to USB, the phone is in USB 2.0 MTP mode. You have to pull down notification bar, open the USB notification and switch to USB 3.0.
