The next-generation USB 3.0, which is seen as one of the largest leaps in features for the standard, is expected to begin showing up in computers and peripheral devices by about this time next year with a theoretical maximum speed of 5Gbps – more than ten times what is offered by USB 2.0. The updated interface is also expected to reduce average power consumption while increasing the power output for devices that would otherwise require an AC adapter.
