Numerous types of USB cables have come and gone over the years. USB 3.0 cables demonstrate key advancements over USB 1.1 and the long-adopted USB 2.0 standard. Boasting a Type-A connector across each of these standards, USB 3.0 cables do not require their own dedicated port. Instead, they provide advancements on the existing cable standard, consistently delivering a higher quality performance. USB 3.0 cables come with a wide range of benefits for users, including a transfer rate over 10 times faster than its predecessor and top speeds of 5.0 Gbps.
If you’ve never had a USB 3.0 cable before, what you need to know is that you should see some noticeable changes in speed and power. For example, USB 3.0 connectors and ports were specially built with more pins than the 2.0 standard, delivering fast, high outputs of speed and power. The arrangement of the pins also means that it does interfere working with older USB ports. There are also different versions of the USB 3.0 cable – such as Micro-USB 3.0 which is used for portable drives. For devices released to market between 2008 and 2013, it is highly likely that they use USB 3.0 cables which are built with host-to-peripheral power direction and Type-A to Type-B cable configuration.
The only thing truly required to use a USB 3.0 cable is to have devices that are compliant with this standard.
