In the world of tech, USBs are something which cannot be avoided. USB ports are required for charging, file transfer and connection of computer peripherals. The small cable has become the universal and industrial standard for our electronic gadgets. However that doesn't mean they aren't different types of USBs. They too have their fair share of different models. The USBs widely in circulation are the 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1. Obviously, more the number, faster is the rate of transfer.

On that topic, the USB 3.0 promoter group (which counts Apple, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and others) have announced another USB specification- the USB 3.2. The existing 3.1 is capable of transferring data at 10Gbps in two lanes (5Gbps per lane). The new USB 3.2 will boost that number to 20 Gigabits per second, giving each lane 10Gbps. This faster rate of transfer is the main feature of the USB 3.2.

Of course, both the host and the recipient must support USB 3.2. The good news is that you don't have to change your USB type C cables as long as they are certified for SuperSpeedUSB 10Gbps. This is because when the launched the USB type-C, they made sure that the cables would support better speeds and performance as the USB 3.0 evolves to newer generations.

The USB 3.2 will also work with USB 3.0 and older versions only requiring a minor update. The USB 3.2 is in its final draft and but it'll probably be some time before it rolls out into devices. The formal release is expected to happen in the USB Developers Day North America Day in September.
