The Inquirer saw a demonstration of USB 3.1 at last week's Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. This new protocol ups the bandwidth to 10Gbps and showed a test system in which they achieved a USB 3.1 transfer of nearly 900MB/S.
In the demo in San Francisco this week, the speeds shown prove that these speeds have in fact been reached. In earlier tests, the USB-IF's data transfer speeds reached in excess of 900MBps. USB-IF said that these faster USB speeds should start rollig out in hardware available on shop shelves by the end of next year.
