SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2)- PERFORMANCE
SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) delivers up to 10Gbps (gigabits per second), which is enough to support all of your data transfer needs including audio/video for Ultra-HD 4K displays. If you’re looking for the latest devices, asking about the latest technology, or needing fast data transfer—SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps is for you.
Make sure you understand, however, that to get the speed out of SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps, the host (e.g. the computer), the cable, and the device (e.g., external hard drive) must all offer USB 3.1 Gen 2 capabilities.
SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 devices.
- You don’t have to reinvest in all new products.
- If used with a USB 2.0 device, it will perform at the old USB 2.0 speed.
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 10Gbps 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 10Gbps logo on the product or product packaging.
USB Type-C™ Cables & Connectors - CONVENIENCE
Current USB Standard-A connectors are too large for new smaller form factor devices that are becoming thinner all the time. Plus, current USB connectors cause confusion over plug orientation and cable direction. The new USB Type-C™ cables and connectors address these issues.
USB Type-C™ cables/connectors are slim enough for phones and robust enough for laptops and tablets. Plus, the plug orientation as well as the cable direction is reversible—no more fussing over whether it’s upside down or not, or which end you plug in.
USB Type-C™ connectors are similar in size to the USB Micro-B connectors.
Note: You will need an adapter if you are connecting a new USB Type-C™ cable/connector to an older USB port.
