have apparently worked out a cunning plan to triple USB 3.0 transfer rates.
USB 3.0 is rated at 4.8Gb/s and this is plenty compared to USB 2, but
NEC did one better, or three better, as it promises to deliver speeds
of 16Gb/s. NEC demonstrated a chip that can eliminate distortions
caused by high throughput rates.
We really don't want to go into the dirty and geeky details of how it
was done, nor do we want to pretend that we fully understand how it
works. Apparently it involves Roquefort cheese, well never mind. We
believe NEC, but the real issue is whether the technology will find its
place on the market. USB 3.0 is still not something we see every day,
let alone a faster, non-standardized version.
