The spec is expected to offer an incredible 10 times the speed of USB 2.0.
Unfortunately for Windows users, there are rumours that Windows 7 won’t support USB 3.0 due to development time constraints…whether that is actually the case, time will tell.

- USB 2.0: 13.9 minutes
- USB 3.0: 70 seconds
Can you say fast?
