Posted by Alan at 11:59 AM on February 19, 2012

Jeff Ravencraft, President and CEO of the USB Implementers Forum, was recently at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to talk a little about what is going on with USB these days.  For a bit of background, the USB Implementers Forum sets the standards for what products can use the official USB logo on their gear and also trains retailers about what it all means to consumers.

USB 3.0, branded “USB SuperSpeed” has recently arrived and is beginning to find it’s way into products hitting the market now.  The organization recently certified two new Intel chipsets for USB SuperSpeed, bringing the total number of certified products now on the market to more than 360.  In the video below you can find out a little bit more about what to expect from USB 3.0, such as syncing speeds, power efficiency, and charging speed.  You will also get a sneak peak about a new power delivery spec that is coming out soon.  Find out more here.
