Final specs of USB 3.1 set against Thunderbolt with 10Gbps Bandwidth

USB 3.0 has come way too late but with a welcome sight as it offered significantly higher theoretical bandwidth over USB 2.0, but now that the 5Gbps USB 3.0 is available in pretty much any desktop, Ultrabook or notebook systems of practically any budget.

The new version of USB 3.1 ‘Superspeed+’ is set for 10Gbps, and now that specifications are all finalized by the USB promoter group, its only a matter of time that the newer devices which can take advantage of this will roll out. What’s important is that this goes head-to-head against Thunderbolt, and possibility does exist that this may completely overshadow thunderbolt devices entirely.

The announcement press release said the following:

SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps uses a more efficient data encoding and will deliver more than twice the effective data through-put performance of existing SuperSpeed USB over enhanced, fully backward compatible USB connectors and cables.  Compatibility is assured with existing USB 3.0 software stacks and device class protocols as well as with existing 5Gbps hubs and devices and USB 2.0 products.

In the meanwhile the USB Promoter Group will be starting a developer conference in August, October and December.
