USB 3.0 will Transfer 25GB in 70 seconds. Blazingly Fast.

USB 3.0 will Transfer 25GB in 70 seconds. Blazingly Fast.

On November 17, at the SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) Developers Conference, the specifications for USB 3.0 will be released

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.

To give you an idea of the difference in transfer speeds:

  • USB 1.0: 9.3 hours
  • USB 2.0: 13.9 minutes
  • USB 3.0: 70 seconds

Can you say fast?
