De USB maniacs van USB Workshop melden ook dat USB 2.0 wel tot 3 keer sneller zal zijn dan aanvankelijk verteld werd afgelopen februari. Met 360-480 Mbs zal USB 2.0 nu wel 30 tot 40 sneller zijn dan USB 1.1. Lees hier meer.
A group of PC industry leaders announced today that the speed target of Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 is two to three times faster than what was disclosed at the Intel Developer Forum in February.
Earlier this year, the USB 2.0 Promoter Group, consisting of Compaq, HP, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, NEC and Philips, announced an early speed estimate of USB 2.0 being 120 to 240 Megabits per second (Mbs), or 10 to 20 times faster than USB 1.1. This latest increase in the speed target puts the rate now at 360-480 Mbs, or 30 to 40 times faster than USB 1.1.
The revised and significantly higher target rate is a result of analyses conducted by the USB 2.0 Promoter Group that conclude that speed can be raised without additional cost or complexity over the previous estimate.
``This achievement on USB 2.0 will further build the great momentum of USB into even more demanding user applications, such as image creation and interactive gaming, and provide an effective upgrade path for today's USB peripherals,'' said Pat Gelsinger, Intel vice president and general manager, Desktop Products Group.
