USB alliance finalizes USB 3.1 specifications, gives us speed up to 10Gbps

While USB 3.0 might not be as fast as Thunderbolt is has one huge advantage: it actually is rolled out and used by tons of computers and peripherals. Now the USB Alliance has finalized the specifications for the next update of USB: USB 3.1. As always the standard is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 but to get all the benefits of the new specification we will have to wait until it is implemented in computers and peripherals start using it.

Among the new features we find double the speed of USB 3.0: 10 Gbps as well as the ability to provide up to 100W per port. Developer sessions for USB 3.1 will start in august and we will have to see when the first products using the new updated port comes out.
