The History of USB. Explaining USB 3.0


The USB, Universal Serial BUS, s a connector created to replace a ton of other ports for printers, mouses, keyboards and any other extra plug-in devices like game pads. USB is not in its third version and we will have soon enough an USB connector that can be inserted in the port upside down or the other way around and it will still work.

USB 1 had a transfer rate of 12 Mbps, USB 2 has a transfer rate of 480 Mbps and USB 3 allows you to transfer almost 5Gbps of data. Ars Technica has published an article about the History of USB. You should read it NOW!

FireWire or Thunderbolt are better than USB, but they cost more and require extra chips to make them work on any other motherboard. It seems that the USB reign is still a long one!
