USB is about to get better and faster. We are talking about 80Gbps fast. That is twice as fast as it already is.

This translates to better displays and faster hubs.

USB 4 version 2.0 makes some clever use of existing cable technology. If your USB-C cables are less than two years old, they may begin to work faster before the end of the year.

Of course, older USB technology will continue to work. That is the beaty of USB.
