USB 3.0 from Intel, Buy Intel (INTC) stock

PCWorld reports that a faster version of the Universal Serial Bus ports are on the cards… Intel, spearheading the movement, along with other companies, are working together to promote USB 3.0.

USB 3.0 is said to deliver 10 times the speed of USB 2.0. The data transfer rates for USB 3.0 are charted at 4.8 Gigabits per second (Gbps) (the speed of USB 2.0 being 480 Mbps).

Intel stated that the USB 3.0 specification would be optimized for low
power and improved protocol efficiency. The USB 3.0 ports and cabling
will be designed with both copper and optical cable capabilities,
meaning even higher speeds will be possible in the future.

Intel has already unveiled a Wireless USB transfer format, operating at 480 Mbps.

These improvements, as usual, will mean a lot of implications…

* USB 2.0 obsolete
* USB 2.0 cheap as hell
* Increasing dependency on USB… Maybe even for local networking?!!
* Damn fast pen drives!!!

Hopefully, we’ll see USB 3.0 by next year.
