Intel Developers Demo USB 3.0 Throughput On Linux 231

Posted by timothy
from the future-sweetness dept.
Sarah Sharp writes "Intel's Open Source Technology Center is working on USB 3.0 support for Linux. USB 3.0 has wire speeds of 5Gbps and promises to be 10 times faster than USB 2.0. A recent video demo shows speeds that are 3.5 times faster than USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 drivers will be submitted to the mainline kernel when the eXtensible host controller interface (xHCI) specification reaches a 1.0 release."

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.

Working...
