Your USB cable will soon get a speed boost

Your USB cable is about to get a speed boost.

Everybody is familiar with USB. Since 1996 we have been utilising it with our computers, and now with mobile devices as well.

Yes, that much time has passed since the introduction of USB.

It would be more difficult to connect different types of devices, charge them, and transfer data without USB.

Of course, over time USB has evolved and improved. And in the next few weeks there will be yet another fresh new improvement.

Unusually, this one could be a little more fun in that you won’t need to buy any new USB cables or equipment.

The scheduled release of USB 4 2.0 was just announced by the USB Promoter Group, the organisation that drives USB developments.

What makes that exciting, you may ask?

As long as your cables aren't more than a couple of years old, you can use this to double the data transmission speeds on cables you already own.

The highest data transfer rate under this new standard will be up to 80GBps. Gigabytes per second, that is.

It means improved display performance and quicker data transfer. Excellent news to increase productivity in your company.

The USB Promoter Group is made up of well-known technology companies like Apple, HP, Microsoft, and Intel.

Its main responsibility is to expand support for various platform types and increase USB capabilities to suit market demand.

The USB 4 2.0 update is anticipated about November 2022.

Before the year is through, get in touch with us if you want to increase performance and productivity in your company. In every business, there are always methods to make processes go more quickly.
