Transfer up to 5GB in a sec with USB 3.0 launching next week

usb334USB 3 faced some serious issues in finalizing the specifications at the start, especially due to the differences between the big players Intel, AMD and NVIDIA; the final specs will result in a new standard, which will be ten times faster than USB 2.0. SuperSpeed USB will support maximum physical-layer throughput of 5 Gbps and application layer data rates of up to 350 Mbytes/second. The spec aims to speed transfers for high definition video and other uses where today’s 480 Mbit/second USB 2.0 can be sluggish. Initial test showed that it was possible to transfer a 25 GB file in just 70 seconds over USB 3.0 connection. This is lightning fast, when compared to USB 2.0, in which case it took an agonizingly slow 14 minutes, while it took a torturous 9.3 hours on USB 1.0.
