This transmits us to the 2×2 Gen 3.2 USB. Standard was declared in 2017, yet another plot bend is this marking adjustment.
USB 3.1 is no longer, such as standard USB 3.0 is not present. Instead USB 3.0 is Gen 1 (5Gbps, first USB 3.0), USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps, USB 3.1b) and USB 3.2 Gen 2×2. That’s why not only the names of old standards are erasing from USB-IF existence, without being weird it can not even be counted to 3.
Okay, it bodes well somehow or other. USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 “Gen 2” is several times, 10Gbps x 2 at the end of the day. Plus, any USB 3.2 port should support the new refining standard, even if it is 5Gbps.
Here’s the way things are separated by:
- USB 2 Gen 1: known initially as USB 3.0 and renamed recently as USB 3.1 Gen 1. It’s the first particular USB 3.0 and can exchange up to 5Gbps of information.
- USB 2 Gen 2: formerly known as USB 3.1 and later as USB 3.1 Gen 2. It provides speeds up to 10Gbps.
- USB 3.2 Gen 2×2: formally known as USB 3.2, this is the most up-to-date and fastest spec, promising rates of up to 20Gbps (using two 10Gbps dual paths).
Here is a method for the insensitivity of USB-IF. Each new specification incorporates previous generations into the imagination, the way in which there is a way to keep things relatively consistent. Thus, the past 3.0 spec USB 3.1 Gen 1 and new, fast 3.1 gadgets moved to USB 3.1 Gen 2 when USB 3.1 turned out.
Similarly, now we have USB 3.2, those numbers are being hit again with USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 3.2 Gen 2. For the speed of the new 20Gbps, this USB 3.2 is not Gen 3 because it is not distributed at speeds of 20Gbps. – It’s working on two 10 Gbps lanes simultaneously, this is the reason that we have the USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 designation.
IF has prescribed names to empty these three specs to make things simpler: SuperSpeed USB, SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps, and SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps. The group also requests that other names, such as “SuperSpeed Plus, Enhanced Superspade and SuperSpeed +”, which were previously used in the era of 3.0 and 3.1 standards, are used for product names, messages, packaging or any other Are. Not user Change the content. “Although these companies should listen to them and follow those guidelines.
It is also important to note that these standards only control the transfer speed, not the connector type. This means that USB Type A, MicroUSB, and USB-C can get all types of USB 3.2 branding – however, technically, only USB-C cable is expected to support the fastest USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 speed. This is likely to add some additional confusion to change the name of USB-IF, given that the creator is theoretically delivering the speed of 5Gbps on the USB 3.0-era, USB Type-A port, some USB 3.2 port You can call.
USB-IF emphasizes the importance of manufacturers who are honestly listed on their hardware capabilities in marketing but will check the burden on consumers that they are receiving “real” USB 3.2 speeds or older specs. or not. Yet, the fact is that the USB-IF has finalized the naming, it means that we are actually a step closer to seeing such a hardware ship, and this is only for anyone, the faster cable is good Might be possible.
