USB 3 Test Spec in June

Agilent at a conference in Tokyo today said that a test-ready version of the USB 3.0 spec will be ready in June. The standard gives computer and component makers a reference point for building hardware and should let these companies build parts that can be checked for compatibility in the second half of the year. Final USB 3-capable computers and peripherals should be ready by 2010.

The new version of USB is seen as one of the largest leaps in features for the standard and increases the bandwidth to 5Gbps. It simultaneously reduces the average power consumption while increasing the power output for hard drives and other devices that would otherwise require an AC adapter. [via Tech-On]
