That’s what the white paper says. Try any USB 2 device and benchmark it. Like an external USB 2.0 HDD for example. Open HD Tach or similar application and tell me what you get. Post a screen shot of YOUR test here. This obviously means pictures please.
So what you are saying is USB 2 is 4.8 times faster than a 100mb Ethernet link? DON’T THINK SO…
USB 3.0 is finally full duplex. Using the SuperSpeed USB 3 link along with the USB 2 link.
Here’s more below.
Isn’t USB 2.0 fast enough?
Well, yes and no. USB 2.0 for many applications provides sufficient bandwidth for a variety of devices and hubs to be connected to one host computer. However, with today’s ever increasing demands placed on data transfers with high-definition video content, terrabyte storage devices, high megapixel count digital cameras, and HD video capture and portable media players, 480Mbps is not really fast anymore.
Furthermore, no USB 2.0 connection could ever come close to the 480Mbps theoretical maximum throughput, making data transfer at around 320Mbps (40MB/s) - the actual real-world maximum. Similarly, USB 3.0 connections will never achieve 4.8Gbps. We will likely see a real-world maximum rate of 400MB/s with overheads. At this speed, USB 3.0 is a 10x improvement over USB 2.0.
