USB 3.0 has Arrived

Latest USB standard making its way to the market, they call it "Super Speed USB"
In a nutshell, here is what it promises:
  • Higher transfer rates (up to 4.8 Gbps)
  • Increased maximum bus power and increased device current draw to better accommodate power-hungry devices
  • New power management features
  • Full-duplex data transfers and support for new transfer types
  • New connectors and cables for higher speed data transfer...although they are backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices and computers (more on this later)

What I really like about this new standard is its backward compatibility. USB standard is a well planned technology that its next generation has been included on its first design. Devices drivers may also be backward compatible. :)
