    Building robust USB 3.0 support


    One of the important roles Windows plays as part of a broad ecosystem is developing support for new hardware. This is a pretty involved process and so for this post we wanted to take a look at supporting USB 3.0, something we know everyone is anxious to be using because of the improvements it brings. This is also our first video post – we aimed for "engineering" videos and not high production values but I think we make our point (note videos are embedded in HTML5 and available for download). If you're like me when looking at the video, you might think that those file copy progress indicators are looking a bit dated…stay tuned. This post was authored by Dennis Flanagan, the Director of Program Management for the Devices and Networking group. –Steven
    With throughput up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and improved power management that results in longer battery life, USB 3.0 introduces compelling reasons to improve the world’s most popular PC interface.By 2015, all new PCs are expected to offer USB 3.0 ports, and over 2 billion new "SuperSpeed" USB devices will be sold in that year alone.

    Microsoft to provide USB 3.0 support for better battery life in Windows 8


    Microsoft officials are promising USB 3.0 support will be part of Windows 8, which will help with battery-life and power-consumption on tablets and desktop PCs.

    In another new, detailed post, Microsoft officials shared another tidbit about Windows 8: It will have USB 3.0 support.

    The August 22 to the “Building Windows 8″ blog — authored by Dennis Flanagan, the Director of Program Management for the Devices and Networking group — explained the challenge.

    “Each and every USB device, low, full, high, and SuperSpeed, has to work in Windows 8,” he blogged.

    This is nice but too bad usb 3 itself isn't that fastest transfer tool. It would be nice if it were though since it's the most used transfer tool.
