What is USB 3.0?

Apr 22, 2010

We’ve recently received a number of new products as, that we encourage you to check out.

One of the most interesting items are our new USB 3.0 cables. These cables are going to be the next phase in terms of high performance in the USB department.

SuperSpeed USB brings significant performance upgrades to the tried and true USB standards.  These 3.0 cables will offer users 10x the data transfer speed while improving power capacity at the same time.  Another feature is that the cables come with “sync and go” technology that will easily allow the device and the computer to connect, which will minimize user wait time.  Additionally, the SuperSpeed USB drives will offer an optimized power efficiency, which means that there will be no device polling or lower active and idle power requirements.

But the overall best feature?  USB 3.0 is completely compatible with USB 2.0, which is the platform currently installed in most computers.  When the switch was made from USB 1.0 to 2.0, the two versions were not able to talk to each other.  But now you can use the high speed performance of USB 3.0 with USB 2.0 devices.  This will make the transition between generations so much smoother.

So if you are interested in checking out the new USB 3.0 cables, you can find them at
