Windows 8 Will Make USB 3.0 Mainstream, Says Intel.
The adoption of a technology is always a lengthy process, and it seems that USB 3.0 will make no exception to this rule. According to an Intel representative, it will be another couple of years before USB 3.0 will be able to replace its predecessor, version 2.0, which is currently ubiquitous. This, despite the obvious advantages offered by USB 3.0, especially related to data-transfer speeds. Intel Manager Steve Peterson, attending the CeBIT Global Conference in Hannover, Germany, revealed that he expected USB 3.0 to become mainstream only with the advent of the next iteration of the Windows client, Windows 8.
