How much faster is USB 3 than USB 2?

Recommended Posts

I heard USB 3 is really fast.... even faster than firewire. Can anyone tell me how much faster USB 3 is when compared to USB 2?

USB 3 is capable of transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps (gigabits per second); that's a little over 10 times faster than USB 2's 480Mbps (1,000Mbps equals 1Gbps). In practice, it won't always be this much faster — your speeds may vary depending on hardware configuration — but it will always be much faster than USB 2.
