Intel Update For USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Increase Power Output As Well

superspeedusbIntel has announced that they will be introducing an update to their USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface, where this spanking new update will not only increase the total available throughput via the interface, but will also bump up the power output as well. In a nutshell, this would allow you to transfer data to your USB 3.0 devices at a faster rate in addition to having the potential of powering a bunch of other peripherals connected to it, sans a dedicated power cord. Now we’re talking!

Having said that, USB 3.0 compatible devices have been around for some time already – can you believe it that we are already in the fourth year or so? Somehow it does feel to me that not everyone is jumping aboard the USB 3.0 bandwagon as fast as I would like, but that is just my personal opinion. The new USB 3.0 SuperSpeed specifications is said to be able to boost up the power delivery to 100 watts, which is a ten-fold increase from the current 10 watts, and this is achieved via delivering a maximum of 20 volts at 5 amps. It would be interesting to see how the peripherals world cope with this new quantum leap.
