USB Says New Spec Could Double Data Transfer Speeds

PCs and mobile devices connected to peripherals via USB ports will in the future be able to transfer data at twice the speed possible today.

A new specification that doubles the data transfer over USB to 10Gbps is in the works, said the USB Implementers Forum, a standards-setting organization that defines specifications for the data transfer technology. The announcement was made at the Intel Developer Forum being held in Beijing.

The speed improvement means users will be able to move gigabytes of data between PCs and peripherals such as portable hard drives in a matter of seconds. That is especially useful when transferring large high-resolution video files.

The new specification is an improvement over the existing USB 3.0, which can transfer data at 5Gbps. Most PCs today ship with USB 3.0 ports, while smartphones and tablets have micro-USB ports based on the older and slower 2.0 specification. Mobile devices will get faster signalling rates with micro-USB 3.0 ports in the future.
