USB2.0 cable and USB3.0 cable difference , which is better

- Dec 05, 2017 -

In a nutshell, USB3.0 is faster than USB2.0

The highest transmission rate of USB2.0 is 480Mbps, that is, 60MB/s. However, it is important to note that this is the theoretical transmission value.

The actual transmission rate of USB3.0 is about 3.2Gbps (400MB/S). The highest rate in theory is 5.0Gbps (that is, 625MB/S).

The USB 3.0 can transmit large capacity files (such as HD films) at the storage rate defined by the memory piece. For example, a flash drive that uses USB 3 can transfer data from 1GB to a host in 15 seconds, while USB 2.0 takes 43 seconds.

The USB 3.0 can also solve the problem that the USB 2.0 is unable to identify the battery free devices. The host can slow down the current through the USB 3.0 to identify the devices, such as the cell phone that has been damaged by the battery.
