New USB standard doubles speed of the USB 3.2
The USB Promoter Group has presented the new standard USB 4.0. The technology uses USB-C cables and connections and delivers a speed of 40 gigabits per second.

For USB 4.0 the technique of Thunderbolt 3 is used as a basis. This is a protocol for exchanging data via USB-C cables at high speed between suitable devices. With Thunderbolt 3, the speed of 40 Gbps for data transfer is already achievable. The current USB 3.2 gets 20 Gbps.

Manufacturer Intel has made Thunderbolt 3 an open standard, so that the USB Promoter Group can use the technology for the development of USB 4.0. The technology also works with older standards such as USB 3.2, USB 2.0 and Thunderbolt 3.

It is not clear when manufacturers can incorporate the USB 4.0 standard into products. This can, according to reports, take a few more years.
