USB 3.0 is the latest Universal Serial Bus standard. It improves on the USB 2.0 standard by allowing a theoretical bandwidth of 5 Gb/s as opposed to 480 Mb/s on USB 2.0. It has also been upgraded to full duplex data flow, this makes USB 3.0 suitable for high performance hard drive storage.

To take advantage of USB 3.0 requres either an add-in card to add USB 3.0 to an existing machine, or the machine has to be built with a new motherboard that includes USB 3.0. We will see more of these as manufacturers adopt the standard. A good development is that USB 3.0 cards and motherboards will still be compatible with USB 2.0 cables and devices. To use USB 3.0 devices requires specific cables that have the USB 3.0 contacts as well as the USB 2.0 contacts. These cables are backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices (at USB 2.0 speeds).
