Standard USB 3.1 is here and waiting for mass support





Despite the fact that USB 2.0 is firmly lodged in all areas of IT-represented SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.0 standard with the speed of a bullet has gained popularity, and every self-respecting manufacturer of computer hardware and peripherals considered it my duty to quickly adapt new technology and introduce new products based on it. The reason was simple: the data rate using the new standard increases to 10 times.

Some time later, the company Intel introduced its own technology – Thunderbolt, which can provide data rates from 10 up to 100 Gbit / s. Fortunately for the USB Implementers Forum (for those who do not know, it is responsible for the support and development of bus USB), Thunderbolt has not received due attention of the mass: it is only interested in Apple, but still a few companies that can be counted on the fingers of his left hand Turtles ninja. As a result, manufacturers are supported standard USB 3.0, since Thunderbolt was unnecessarily expensive to use.

Realizing that it was her finest hour, USB-IF decides to introduce a new standard SuperSpeed ​​USB 10 Gb / s, which uses a more advanced method for encoding data and thereby increases the rate of transmission, provided the use of new cables and connectors.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear how soon will have the first SSD , flash drives and other external peripherals that will support the new transmission standard, but predicted it should not take much time. First, for a more rapid introduction of new technology USB-IF is going to hold a number of events for developers: Conference USB 3.1 Developers Day will be held in the United States at the end of this month, Europe’s event is scheduled for early October, and in Asia meeting to be held in December . And secondly, the new standard will be fully compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, which further increase the chances of success.

“Responding to the needs of customers in a faster data transfer standard, the company does not forget about backward compatibility with older standards.”
