The Universal Serial Bus (USB) which is a type of computer port which can be used to connect equipment to a computer requires a cable cord sometimes, hence the need for a ‘Cable Cord’
The Cable cord does the work of an intermediary, especially between two devices-one from which a media file is been sent and another to which a media file is been sent to. While cable cord has always been a saving grace most of the time, it is, however, still unclear how a USB standard works in most cases. All we usually know about the cord is the fact that media file passes through it. Now, during the ongoing Mobile Week Congress, an unusual announcement was made regarding USB 3.2 which came back in July 2017. Now, USB-IF has revealed 3.2-capable controllers that allow 20Gbps speeds will be available later this year.
The first USB 3.2 chips are likely to arrive on high-end motherboards this summer, though we’ll have to wait a bit longer for the peripherals that take advantage of this standard, with 2020 put forward as a possible date.
Additionally, USB 3.2 is set to absorb the USB 3.0/3.1 branding. So, USB 3.1 Gen 1, which has up to 5 Gbps speeds and was formerly known as USB 3.0, will become USB 3.2 Gen 1. It will have the marketing name of ‘SuperSpeed USB.’
USB 3.1 Gen 2, meanwhile, which supports 10 Gbps, becomes USB 3.2 Gen 2, aka ‘SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps.’ Finally, the upcoming new spec will be called USB 3.2 Gen 2×2, as it uses two high-speed 10 Gbps lanes—only possible with USB Type-C. Its official name is ‘SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps.’ What this rebranding also means is that most future USB devices and ports will be called USB 3.2, making it important for manufacturers to identify their capabilities by using the marketing terms. But whether they choose to do so remains to be seen.
