USB 3.0 promises speeds of 10Gbps like Thunderbolt

1 Mins read

Building on the framework of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2013), as every year, in Las Vegas, the group behind the standard specifications USB 3.0 has announced it will double its specifications and come to 10GPS in 2014.

new USB standard also could make life harder for another new high-speed communication standard, PCIe Cable.

This is the rate offered by Thunderbolt connectors incorporating currently in Apple devices only, therefore, at first sight, this announcement could pose a serious threat to the proposal from the Apple brand.

USB 3.0 offers backward compatibility for connectivity with accessories that use the standard, so if you finally reach these speeds and could use hard drives (for instance) that you had no doubt that a threat looms Thunderbolt.

This increase in speed of USB 3.0 is not an immediate offer, far from it. While you can now enjoy these figures transfer your Mac with accessories compatible with Thunderbolt, it was not until late 2014 or early 2015 when USB 3.0 could provide the same data.

Although actually USB 3.0 uses the same connectors as the current version and allows you to leverage all compatible accessories you have, perhaps not all devices can take advantage of new high-speed specifications.

And is not that what we say. The standard developers themselves say the new USB 3.0 cable may not work properly, as the current high-speed USB cables are not certified to support 10Gbps speeds, although some may be able to allow themselves that rate transfer data.

The new devices are compatible with old USB accessories, but would not support the new speed.

The options, then, are quite clear: 10Gbps speeds today with devices and accessories more expensive than its rivals (Thunderbolt), as compared to a more widespread standard (USB 3.0) but those numbers only provide adaptive devices and at present.
