The New USB 3.0

Good news to all to all USB users and heavy data transferrers out there (I know there are many, including me), the specifications for the new USB 3.0 (pronounced as three point oh) has officially been announced.

The new USB 3.0 will go with a transfer rate of 4.8 Gbit/s… thats a whooping (600 MB/s) and is said to dump a 25GB HD file in just (more or less) 70 seconds.

Oooooh that’s fast…

But here’s the bad news, because the new upgraded version has added pins to it (see photo below), the old USB cables will definitely not work with it… meaning yo will need to buy USB 3.0 cables. But that’s just it I promise.

The New USB 3.0

It’s ok, you’ll still have around 1 year to spend with your old USB cause this will not be out in the market until 2010.

But anything better is better right? Still  a good news.

3 Critical:

  1. Way Faster – this thing is obviously more faster than 2.0, so make sure you choose the right files to delete.
  2. No Worries – you may not be able to use the old cables with this out, but don’t worry… someone will find a way. They always do.
  3. USB 4.0 – I wonder what the 4.0 would be. More pins of course.
