The USB 3.0 Promoter Group comes with a standard USB 3.0 specification that brings us directly to USB 3.2.
When Type-C USB cables were designed, it was assumed that they would have to work in multiple operations and with the USB 3.2 standard this functionality becomes a reality, with the result that the performance level compared to the original USB 3.0 should grow a lot.
With the new specifications, a link based on that standard will be able to achieve two “lanes” at 5Gbps or 10Gbps. Brad Saunders , president of the USB 3.0 Promoter Group, says this new standard brings performance to the next level (” The USB 3.2 update delivers the next level of performance “).
Speaking in real terms, using this technology it is possible to predict data transfer at speeds greater than 2 GB per second.
Obviously at the moment the new specifications are limited to developers: because it requires a USB 3.2 host, a device that supports it, and a specialty Type-C USB cable. Soon, however, on the market, the alternatives to choose from will not be missed.
