USB 3.0 Ups Peripheral Bandwidth
The USB Implementers Forum
introduced the final USB 3.0 specification at the end of 2008. As you can imagine, the new standard once again will accelerate throughput, and although the speed bump isnít as significant as 40x when USB 1.1 was replaced by USB 2.0, there still is a 10x increase in bandwidth. USB 3.0 is specified to run at 5 Gbit/s maximum speed. However, this increase is still great enough to offer almost twice the bandwidth of todayís Serial ATA standard (3 Gbit/s gross bandwidth).
