Soon, we don’t have to wait too long to do data transfer to our machine or to whatever storage media we have. Just imagine, to transfer a 25GB HD movie will take only 70 seconds to finish. That’s really fast!
Yea, the next-generation USB 3.0 specification is slated to be introduced later this month and according to everythingusb, it will be unveiled next monday.
The USB 3.0 specification, a next-generation high-speed connection standard due in 2009, is significant because all future PCs and devices will use connectors based on it. The spec is also expected to offer 10 times the speed of USB 2.0–used in virtually all PCs introduced in the last few years–or roughly 5 gigabits per second.
WinHEC 2008 has a a brief performance comparison sample for data transfer of 25GB HD movie:
- USB 1.0: 9.3 hours
- USB 2.0: 13.9 minutes
- USB 3.0: 70 seconds
