USB 3.0 to Deliver a Tenfold Speed Increase

Post  Admin on Mon Nov 17, 2008 2:07 am

Tighten your seat belts. Data transfer is going into overdrive as
the ubiquitous Universal Serial Bus, better known as USB, prepares to
make a tenfold jump in speed.



That means the vast sea of USB devices -- from HD camcorders to hard
drives and music players -- will be able to transfer music, video,
photos and other data much, much more quickly.



The new standard, the first update to the USB specification in eight
years, will also deliver greater power efficiency and the ability to
recharge a wider variety of gadgets -- and it will most likely mean the
death of the competing standard known as FireWire.

To get a sense of the speed increase, consider this: Transferring
high-definition video of 27 GB, the amount on a standard Blu-Ray disc,
takes about
10 minutes with the current USB 2.0 standard. With USB 3.0, it will
take just about a minute.


"What the user will see is really a much faster response time, less
waiting, more productivity," says Patrick Moorhead, vice president of
advanced marketing at AMD, one of the supporters of the USB 3.0
standard.


The USB Implementers Forum, a
non-profit group founded by companies to promote the standard, will
announce Monday the final set of specs that will clear the way for the
adoption of USB 3.0 by device and component manufacturers. It's the
first major update to USB technology in nearly eight years.


"USB 3.0 will take USB 2.0 to the next level and take away
performance as an issue for data transfer in many devices," says Brian
O'Rourke, an analyst with research firm In-Stat. "USB 3.0 will make it
even more pervasive across devices than it is today."
