USB 3.0, or SuperSpeed USB, is the successor to the USB 1.x and 2.0 standards. In this article we will try and summarise the standards characteristics, presenting everything you need to know about this new standard which has been available since January 2010. SuperSpeed USB has been announced with transfer speeds of 6 to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, is compatible with the older standards, synchronises to peripheral devices faster when connected, and the most important point, better manages energy use (placed into standby, brought out of standby, disabling if required). Are the current operating systems ready to host it? What peripheral devices are already available? These are questions which we will try and answer!
