Usb specs are becoming insane. I only recently learned there was gen 1 and gen 2 3.1. Why can't they just make a motherboard with 6x 3.2 slots and 6x 3.2 type c slots....or is type c going to become one of those jokes where is was one of those standards no one adopted. Most motherboards I have seen have 1x type c slot....why even bother.
That lonely USB-C port is enough for Apple's Earpods lol.

@yeeeman Lol. Cause they forced you at gun point to buy it, right? Usb 3.0 is enough for most, including me even with a ssd as external backup.

USB 3.2 ? Intel is like: Z470 Chipset coming UP!
https://forums.guru3d.com/data/avatars/m/45/45709.jpg
Think I'll wait for 3.3.10059. That revision will be found on the Intel chipset Z470.9 based mobos... Though I can BARELY wait, that's how impressed I am with the advancement of USB specs....

USB3 was much needed as USB2 was too slow for external HDs and was also holding back flash drives. After that I didn't really care anymore, but I have to say the Type-C connector is quite nice for a phone as there's no need to check the orientation.

But, of course - we are saved from extinction now that we do not have to worry about "orientation". Because, lo and behold, disorientation of such magnitude could have lead us to unimaginable disasters, compared to (but not limited to) Irma, El Niño and alike... Ouch! Something is missing here, in the new specs: whatever happened to RGB decoration?! I want every pin to be equipped with LED of a different color!;)

Lots of typo errors in this article. Thought you might want to know.

Is thunderbolt still faster reason i ask is because theres been so many usb port updates over the past 2 years im trying to keep up myself lol

Have we got to the stage now where we might as well use USB instead of Sata? XD Why why why has Sata not been increased in so long >.> might as well use USB or thunderbolt for SSD's since Sata bottlenecks them.... 2500 MB/s comes close to m.2 slot speeds XD

No, because latency.

@thatguy91 Exactly, but, alas!, only from the logic's point of view.

Now? Sorry, buddy, but I'm so old that most of my phones had a round power plug that had all the orientation demands of a round plug, which is none on the significant axis. Then came the micro-usb and you always had to check. Type-C is a single step back towards the original situation. Like I said, after the much needed speed increase introduced by usb3 (maybe you are so young you were never experienced the slooooooow speed of usb2), this was the only usb change that was worth noticing for me.

Come on guys you know trying to stick a USB connection into the back of my PC is a nightmare sometimes. That's because it's set up under my desk and by the wall. If only they invented a USB connection that fits both ways, that would make it much easier. What's that you say, it's already invented but unlucky for me none of my devices have that type of connection. So boohoo to you. Please can you just make one USB port that fits all connections and devices and stop this BS.

i dont even use the 3.1 ports i have and the 3.0 ports i have dont even run past 2.0 speed cause i dont have anything that need the speeds in first place, guess it could usful if i got external hdd that used 3.0 or higher

This is getting annoying already. I hate what industry does nowadays by moving at such a fast pace that even consumers cannot keep up. Why they don't just release USB 4.0 with 1Tbps, with 1KW of power and call it a day for the next 10 years? They like to create one million revisions and release them once a week, like somebody would care. I know that shareholders are crazy for more money and that new stuff drives the market and the sales in general, but come on! Take a vacation, enjoy some wine and live the life. Computers from 5 years ago are still very much ok and USB 3.0 is still plenty enough for pretty much everything you could possibly need.
Um......you might want to get interested in a different hobby. This is a technology forum. Technology advances fast, many times faster then the industry. Like, that's exactly what is supposed to happen with technology.
Emille:

How is having not implemented new specs moving forward.... Motherboards still have pointless 2.0 slots, usb 3.0 only, a few gen 1 3.1 slots and a single type c connector. That would be like calling the current existence of 16k displays 'moving forward' when no one even has access to them, let alone could afford them. It will move forward when the legacy garbage doesn't comprise 80% of all usb slots on a motherboard.
None of this has anything to do with why technology shouldn't move forward. If you're complaining that there is slow adoption rate, or that older generation stuff is still being used, then complain about that to the people who are still utilizing or under-utilizing said product, not the people advancing the technology itself. It's up the people who are developing USB to advance it, it's up to everyone else to utilize it.

^This. Y'all complaining about USB advancing too fast (lol?) Whereas other areas its not moving fast enough.
thatguy91:

The USB 3.1 generations and 3.2 should have been released at once. If they have further specs planned for the next say, year, they should wait and incorporate it together.
That's not how technology advancements work. If they did, we'd never get new technology, because "Well we'll just wait till next year to have something better" for eternity.

The biggest problem with this idea is that it'll take a long time before USB type A connectors are gone. USB type C connectors are the future, everyone should understand that, but that doesn't automatically mean type A just disappears suddenly. There's far too many type A connectors to simply decide to not include them on laptops/PCs/etc. In 10 years, i'd expect that motherboards might have more type C connectors then type A, but even that i wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't come true. People, not companies in this regards, are slow to change. If given the chance, and you have type C, and you went out to buy a new mouse today, and you saw one with a type C and a type A connection, even though you can support both connections, 99% of people would buy the type A, because it's what they know, and they can justify it with stating if they use it on a different PC later on they don't have to worry that PC might be older and have no type C connection. Because of this, adoption simply will be slow.

And I just got USB 3.1 on this new motherboard I bought couple of months ago, this technology is going not just fast but oddly.
