USB 3.0 Cables

USB 3.0 is the latest revision of the Universal Serial Bus standard released in 2008. This new standard offers increased transfer rates up to 4.8Gbps, increased maximum bus power, improved power management, and new connectors and cables that facilitate the higher transfer speeds and additional power.

USB 3.0 cables and devices are also required to achieve the fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds. Currently the majority of 3.0 devices include external hard drives, hard drive docks and flash drives.
