SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.1 Gen 1)
SuperSpeed USB delivers effortless audio/video streaming, music and photos to your home, office, car, and anywhere in between. SuperSpeed USB transfers data up to 5Gbps, up to 10X faster than Hi-Speed USB. SuperSpeed USB works with all USB products. It’s backward compatible with USB 2.0.
USB 3.1 SpecificationThe USB 3.1 specification includes definitions for both 5Gbps (Gen 1) and 10Gbps (Gen 2) data rates:
- USB 3.1 Gen 1 – SuperSpeed USB (Products signal at 5Gbps)
- USB 3.1 Gen 2 – SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (products signal at 10Gbps)
Note: The terms USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 3.0 are synonymous
What the Logos Mean to YouTo use the SuperSpeed USB logo and icons, products must pass USB-IF certification testing to ensure they are built to meet the USB specifications and interoperate with other USB devices. This means you can be confident that Certified USB products will work with other Certified USB products. This content is being provided for educational purposes only and does not imply that the associated product has been certified. To confirm if a device has been certified, visit the www.usb.org website or look for the Certified SuperSpeed USB logo on the product or product packaging.
High Performance USB 3.0 Drives
For transferring data between devices, you really can’t beat a USB drive. With the introduction of USB 3.0, transfer speeds have significantly increased and with drives can hold as much as an entire computer due to higher storage capacities. And naturally, some USB 3.0 drives are faster than others. High performance USB 3.0 drives are distinguished from standard USB drives by higher read/write speeds. Since they are faster they work especially well for large files, such as raw photos, video files, or a large data library. Photographers, videographers, and data analysts especially will appreciate the fast data transfer speeds and high storage capacity. With a high capacity USB 3.0 drive, you can virtually hold all your computer’s data files in the palm of your hand.
Things to Consider
USB 3.0 Interface
The USB 2.0 interface was limited in that it supported data rates up to 480Mb/sec, whereas the USB 3.0 interface supports up to 5Gb/sec, approximately 10 times the speed potential of the older USB 2.0 interface. Newer USB 3.0 flash drives allow users to take advantage of the higher performance potential of the USB 3.0 interface. In addition to being faster, the USB 3.0 interface provides more power for device charging and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
Is a high performance USB 3.0 drive actually faster than a standard USB 2.0 drive? The short answer – absolutely! Verbatim’s high performance USB 3.0 drives use dual-channel architecture to increase data transfer speeds. Compared to single-channel drives, dual-channel USB 3.0 drives can transfer data up to twice as fast. Single channel drives can only read or write data onto one flash memory IC (Integrated Circuit) at a time. Dual channel drives can read or write data onto two flash memory IC’s at the same time, effectively doubling the data rate.
If you recently bought a new computer, chances are your computer is equipped with one or more USB 3.0 ports. Using a USB 3.0 drive with a USB 3.0 port allows you to take advantage of additional performance the USB 3.0 interface has to offer, while still being compatible with USB 2.0 drives. You can also use your USB 3.0 drives in older USB 2.0 ports, although the performance will be lower. For maximum speed and performance, use your USB 3.0 drive with a USB 3.0 port.
Beyond dual channel or other architectural approaches to increase speed, higher performing MLC flash IC’s are also employed to further push the performance envelope of ultra-high performance USB 3.0 drives.
MLC flash stores 2 bit per cell, which offers faster reader and writing performance than the typical high density TLC (three bit per cell) or ultra-high density 3D flash (3 bits per cell, vertically stacked in multiple layers) used in most consumer storage products.
