    Faster Throughput

    According to Symwave, the new cable dramatically improves throughput speed -- even now, in its early development stages. Where USB 2.0 offers speeds of 480 megabits per second, USB 3.0 jumps to a theoretical 5 gigabits per second.

    Not surprisingly a new cable will be required.

    History item:
    10 billion USB devices shipped to date!

    Are there two specifications for this as well, like Hi-Speed and Full-Speed for USB 2.0?

    Sounds blazingly fast, but I wonder how compatibility with existing devices will be implemented.
