USB 3.0: 10 times faster than USB 2.0

That's right, USB 3.0 is coming and it will be 10 times faster than USB 2.0. And how exactly are they able to do that?

Well, USB 3.0 improves upon its successors by adding fiber-optic cable alongside the copper wiring, greatly increasing the speeds. This will allow increasing the sending data rate from 480 megabits per second (USB 2.0 standard) to a whopping 4.8 gigabits per second.

The bad news is that this new technology should start being used in devices around 2009 or 2010.
