USB 3.0 integrated in windows 8 says Intel.

Market running with a lot of rumors….and while talking about the future operating system is first we get a little news and second is it is hard to speculate two years out about technology that might change considerably between now and then. But this time the Intel has announced that USB 3.0 will be an embedded product within the Windows 8 Operating System.

People still have a confusion that what the USB 3.0 is …….it is a new feature in the bus, which provides a fourth transfer mode ate 4.8 Gbit/s. This gives is a “Superspeed”. With the raw through put at 4 Gbit/s, and the new specifications, it is possible to achieve a speed of 3.2 Gbit/s, which translates to 0.4 GBytes/s or 400Mbytes/s or more after protocol overhead.

USB 2.0 maxes out at 480 MBits/s. USB 3.0 is expected to max out at 5 Gbits/s. This dramatic performance improvement over version 2.0, makes it more desirable. However, these new data transfer rates while attainable by the USB hardware.

Intel expects Windows8 and the continuing evolution of computers to make USB 3.0 readily available. But, Intel, however, is not optimistic when it relates to the mainstream adoption of the technology. Apparently the technical details and specification to overcome are still problematic.
