The infographic aims to educate USB users on the different specifications and what to expect from the upgraded version. It provides details on faster transfer speed, better resource allocation, and compatibility.

In anticipation of the USB 4 release, Juiced Systems, a provider of premium-quality computer accessories, has released the infographic USB 3.X vs USB4: Battle of Generations.

With the recent announcement of USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF), defined as “a non-profit corporation founded by the group of companies that developed the Universal Serial Bus specification,” the USB is poised to have more power and more speed. The upgraded version is getting closer to the promised one-cable-for-all solution.

The evolution of USB, short for Universal Serial Bus, started back in 1994. However, it was not until the launching of USB 1.0 in 1996 when people started using it, with a signal rate of 12 megabits per second. The start of the high-speed USB was in 2000, with the release of USB 2.0, running at 480 megabits per second. It was around the same time smaller connectors, like micro USBs, were produced for charging and display on smartphones and other multimedia devices.

Also, the infographic compares the advantages of USB 4, based on the specifications from USB-IF, to its predecessors. With its 40 gigabytes per second signal rate, USB 4 has the capacity to daisy-chain multiple devices with 4k displays. With the integration of Thunderbolt 3, data and display protocols can be simultaneously transferred.

Intel, known for producing computer processors, including Thunderbolt 3, has released its protocol to the public royalty-free. It means manufacturers can create USB 4 with the Thunderbolt 3 capacity without having to pay Intel for the licensing fee.
