Nikkei Says That USB 3.0-Equipped PCs Will Be Here By the End of 2009

Labels: ,

According to Nikkei, companies will start to ship USB 3.0-Equipped PCs before 2010 hits, meaning by the end of this year. The last prediction was that it would be early 2010, but it looks like we might be able to get a new PC with USB 3.0 for Christmas this year! Its full potential won't be reached for a while, but I think a 4.8Gbps transfer speed is definitely something to look forward to, am I right? Just to recap, courtesy of Gizmodo.

With transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps, it'll dump a 25GB HD file in about 70 seconds, and the architecture has been beefed up with extra data lanes to make for more sustained, rather than bursty transfer speeds, making it better for camcorders and the like. Even though it delivers more power than USB 2.0 to charge gadgets faster (and it'll revive a completely dead one too), its new polling architecture makes it more efficient.
