- What is SuperSpeed USB 3.0?
- USB 3.0 is the next major revision to the Universal Serial Bus. It offers the same ease-of-use and plug and play capabilities as previous generations of USB technologies but with a 10X performance increase and better power management. This performance increase is achieved through the SuperSpeed technology, which allows multiple streams of data transfer and boosts its peak bandwidth to 4.8Gbp/s (572MB/s). USB 3.0 devices are compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports and connectors but won't run at SuperSpeed without USB 3.0 devices, cables and USB ports with a USB 3.0 host controller. For users of USB 3.0, the goal of connecting devices to PCs or notebooks is still the same as the USB 2.0 specification. Due to the broad deployment of USB 2.0 devices in the market, SuperSpeed USB devices must be backward compatible. The higher speed and reduced power consumption for the USB 3.0 specification uses advanced mechanisms and techniques similar to ones used for other highbandwidth interfaces, such as the PCI Express (PCIe) specification. Video is one of the big drivers for USB 3.0. HD video uses massive amounts of storage and transferring video through USB 2.0 can be time-consuming. External removable storage is also in need of a speed boost. eSATA is fast, however, the industry has not seen broad adoption in the market. The first USB 3.0 devices on the market are USB Flash drives and external hard drives
