Kecepatan USB 3.0 10Gbps
"USB 3.0 Promoter Group which determines the USB specification revision 3.0 is doing that will increase the speed to 10 gigabits per second," said president and COO of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) Jeff Ravencraft, as quoted from The Register.
Double the transfer speed is not the only improvement to be implemented on USB 3.0. "The other main point is that we improve the ability of encoding data so that the data transfer capabilities can be more efficient. This will increase the speed, efficiency of I / O power becomes higher," said Ravencraft.
USB 3.0 Promoter Group Chairman Brad Saunders added that the increase in the speed of USB 3.0 is done by doubling the clockrate, in addition to improved its efficiency of data transfer. "Bandwidth is two times higher than the estimated minimum."
Encoding data model that will be applied to the USB 3.0 interface is compatible with all types of data, including audio and video.
However, to be able to enjoy a higher theoretical speed, the cable will also be needed a new model. "You see, old wiring can not support the new speed standards," said Saunders, assuring that the new USB port to maintain compatibility with previous versions of USB ports.
About the name, it is unclear the new USB 3.0 standard will be called what. Once, when it was first introduced in 1996, is referred to as the universal port "USB" only. Then, in April 2000, USB 2.0 add frills in the front so it becomes "Hi-Speed USB". Then there is USB 3.0, which is named "SuperSpeed USB".
"We will develop its brand in conjunction with the updated specifications," said Saunders.
