Like I know the transfer speeds are vastly different.
But I don't understand is why they are faster. And why couldn't they have implemented USB 3.0 when they released 1.0? Like what technical breakthrough was required to get transfer speeds that fast?
- capacities of computer? like they couldn't read the data fast enough? Although USB is still well below hard drive transfer speeds
- engineering breakthrough? They found some new material which could transfer at a faster rate? Was this in the cable itself? In the hardware?
