Has anyone come across a MB that's able to boot with USB 3.0 speed?

There are plenty. Its better to read through reviews on Tom's Hardware and similar sites. Some user reviews at Newegg are quite informative at final selection stages.
Has anyone yet come across a motherboard, that's able to boot with USB 3.0 speed.
Interesting article: Tom's Hardware Visits Intel's Motherboard Team .

The newegg comments might have merits, but your assumption that any system that possesses USB3.0 connectivity is also able to boot from it, is flawed. And even if you can boot from it, there might be issues like initialising at low USB1.1 speeds.
Add to that that there aren't many reviews about USB3.0 practical transfer speeds, and if they're present then the controller and/or boot medium is flawed.
What's needed is a fast SSD connected to USB3.0 to verify transfer speeds. Ideally some kind of hardware RAMDISK though. USB sticks are often quite limited in sequential and random speeds.
Is there any review showing a full Windows 7 or Windows 8 booting from SSD/Thumbdrive connected to USB3.0? AMD A75 appears having bootable USB3.0, onboard Asmedia also seems bootable, next up is Intel's Z77 chipset

Since I answered MedEvil's question, assumption of YOUR imaginary needs wasn't my 1st priority. You have a funny way of (mis)quoting others' posts.

Genuine USB 3.0 ports are a crap shoot, some boot but many do not, these units typically come with USB 2.X ports as well that can be booted from. All the dozens of new Dells that I have gotten with USB 3.1 ports will boot fine to any bootable USB device, they especially boot fast with a USB 3.1 pen drive. One caveat that is true for any USB boot, be sure USB booting is turned ON in the BIOS, and make sure secure boot is OFF and legacy boot turned ON.
My Sandisk Extreme Pro 3.1 boots and runs very quickly on everything new coming through the door nowadays.
