USB 3.0 preview at HardOCP

Posted on Saturday, December 19 2009 @ 20:15:39 CET by

HardOCP has taken a look at USB 3.0, you can check it out over here.
I think most of us are familiar with USB and USB 2.0 connected devices. The next advancement in Universal Serial Bus technology we are now seeing come to market is the USB 3.0 specification being billed as "SuperSpeed USB." USB 3.0 connections have twice as many wires as a USB 2.0 connection, but the plug into your motherboard or USB 3.0 card will be backwards compatible with USB 2.0. You CAN plug a USB 2.0 device into a USB 3.0 port and have it work. You can also plug a USB 3.0 device into a USB 2.0 connection as well. Below is a screen shot of Windows 7 letting you know that you are not going as fast as you could!

So Intel, if the entire rest of the world could manage USB 3.0 by now, and even show off devices to connect to it, what the **** was YOUR problem with putting it into chipsets introduced in Q4 2009?
