USB 4.0 Gen 3x2 Speeds up to 40 Gbps

As technology innovation marches forward, new kinds of devices, media formats, and large inexpensive storage are converging. They require significantly more bandwidth to maintain the interactive experience users have coe to expect. In addition, user applications demand a higher performance connection between the PC and these increasingly sophisticated peripherals. SuperSpeed USB addresses this need by adding an even higher transfer rates to match these new usages and devices.

USB continues to be the answer to connectivity and charging for PCs, Consumer Electronics, Display and Mobile architectures. It is a fast, bidirectional, low-cost, dynamically attachable interface that is consistent with the requirements of the PC platforms of today and tomorrow.

The New USB 4.0 specification defines multi-lane operation for new USB hosts and devices, allowing for up to two lanes of 20Gbps operation to realize a 40Gbps data transfer rate. While USB hosts and devices were originally designed as single-lane solutions, USB Type-C® cables were designed from the outset to support multi-lane operation to ensure a path for scalable performance.  

“The primary goal of USB is to deliver the best user experience combining data, display and power delivery over a user-friendly and robust cable and connector solution,” said USB Promoter Group Chairman Brad Saunders in a statement.

All USB 4 devices will include USB Power Delivery technology (USB PD), which can deliver up to 100 watts of power through a USB port. The idea is to allow more than just the slow drip charging for phones through the USB ports on a laptop.

Existing USB Type-C cables will be able to transfer through two lanes, whereas if you have compatible certified cables, you'll be able to transfer up to 40 Gbps.
