Windows 10 to natively support USB 3.1

Windows 10 to natively support USB 3.1

Don’t you have the feeling that Microsoft loves to talk about Windows 10? We surely do. In a few months time we have had numerous press conferences and events on Windows 10 where Microsoft highlighted a number of crucial (new) features of the upcoming OS. Apart from the hype that gets created with a marketing purpose, there’s nothing bad in knowing more about Windows 10. After all we should all know if Windows 10 is any good.

Don’t hope that the future will lack Windows 10 events – they will continue in the foreseeable future. In fact the upcoming Microsoft WinHec conference will be dealing with the new OS again. While you may be thinking “Oh, c’mon, stop it”, WinHec will bring an interesting piece of news regarding Windows 10 – the new OS will natively support USB 3.1 right from the very beginning.

The news will likely be shared during an event called “Enabling New USB Connectivity Scenarios in Windows 10”. In addition, apart from USB 3.1, Windows 10 will also support USB Dual Role, which is a new USB technology too.

The USB 3.1/Dual Role support in Windows 10 speaks well of the new OS and while USB 3.1 will take some time to find its place on the market (remember, we just got the first batch of motherboards with USB 3.1 support and no USB 3.1 devices are seen just yet), once this takes place and people get the needed devices, new speed records will happen right in front of you.
