USB 3.0 – aka SuperSpeed USB – is set to become more super-speedy, with a new specification scheduled for a mid-2013 release that will provide a one-two punch intended to greatly improve its theoretical throughput. "The USB 3.0 Promoter Group that defined and wrote the USB 3.0 spec is doing an amendment to the spec to increase …
USB 3.1 SuperSpeedPlus
There sorted, now go release.
Due to lack of DMA it will have double the CPU drain too.
Just call it USB 3.0 2.0 to avoid confusion.
lose the techy names for standards
Lets just call it USBWang
This isnt about making stuff faster.....
..it's all about market churn that's all.
Ohhh stir it up a bit! Look that one goes one louder!!!
Easy brand upgrade
Drop the names and version numbers
Follow the old CD and DVD idea, go back to using x2, x8, etc measured against USB 1.0. Consumers are used to this and know that the higher the xN number, the better the performance.
Or even simpler and a much better way to explain the benefits to the consumer: USB 5G, USB 10G, etc.
Why hasn’t anyone else noticed this?
Double clock rate + improved encoding = “DoublePlusGood USB”
If the spec requires no new hardware for existing users then something around USB3 such as USB3Plus but if as before it needs new kit then USB10g or USB10gb immediately suggests a speed demon, riding on the back of 3g and 4g and it sets a naming convention for the future, e.g. USB500gb and USB2tb (ever the optimist)!
Stupid. (I did a test with an ssd connected via both esata and usb 3.0). usb is still utter shite.
Seems to sell TVs.
wouldn't it be better to get existing USB tin to actually work at existing USB 3.0 speeds first?
