USB 3.0 does 350MB/s at IDF

Posted on Thursday, August 21 2008 @ 23:08:50 CEST by

Fresco Logic was showing off a computer system with USB 3.0 at the Intel Developer Forum. The new USB 3.0 interface has a max theoretic speed of 4.8Gbit/s (600MB/s) and the company managed to transfer data at up to 2.8Gbit/s (350MB/s) on pre-production hardware. It's far from the USB 3.0's max speed but it's still very impressive considering USB 2.0 has a maximum speed of only 60MB/s.
The company said it used a self-developed software development platform specifically designed for the show allowing it to demonstrate the performance of SuperSpeed USB or USB 3.0. Our computers have been powered by USB 2.0 for almost nine years now and next year is when we should start to see serious adoption of USB 3.0 products.

As a recap, USB 2.0 Hi-Speed is capable of a maximum theoretical speed of 480Mbit/s (or 60MB/s) and USB 3.0 kills it with a spec offering up to a maximum theoretical speed of 4.8Gbit/s (or 600MB/s) – yep, it is on paper ten times faster.
