SuperSpeed USB 3.0 spec finalised

Ten times the speed of USB 2.0

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

USB 3.0 is complete, the group of companies behind the project announced last night. The specification is now officially at version 1.0.

Also known as SuperSpeed USB, the device-connection technology has a peak throughput ten times greater than USB 2.0's 480Mb/s.

SuperSpeed uses new ports to deliver the greater bandwidth. But they're designed to be backwards compatible with full-size USB 1.1 and 2.0 ports.

With the specification now complete, suppliers can work on building ports and the chips that manage them. That said, don't expect standalone USB 3.0 controllers to appear for the best part of a year. Consumer kit equipped with the new standard won't appear until 2010.
