The USB Type-C connectors will continue to be used with the USB4 Version 2.0 standard. The developers who will be ready for the impending architecture change are the ones who will hear this announcement.

Brad Saunders, the chairman of the USB Promoter Group, said, “Once again following USB tradition, this new USB4 specification doubles data performance to bring higher levels of functionality to the USB Type-C ecosystem.” “Higher performance displays, storage, and USB-based hubs and docks are among the solutions benefiting most from this speed boost.”

Users can utilize the new cables and devices with any USB Type-C connector supporting USB4 Version 1.0, USB 3.2, USB 2.0, and Thunderbolt 3 because USB4 Version 2.0 is backward compatible. Older cables can be plugged into USB4 2.0 ports and work properly.

Features of USB4 Version 2.0

  • Using current 40 Gbps USB Type-C passive cables and newly defined 80 Gbps USB Type-C active cables, 80 Gbps data transport, based on a new physical layer design.
  • Updates to display and data protocols to make better use of the expanded bandwidth.
  • The USB 3.2 data tunneling speed can now reach 20 Gbps thanks to improvements to the USB data architecture.
  • Updated to comply with the most recent versions of the PCIe and DisplayPort requirements.
  • The USB Developer Days 2022 conference will feature further information on the impending USB4 Version 2.0 specification. Beginning on November 1st, the event is held in Seattle, Washington.

Apple is a member of the group that creates the USB standard, the USB Promoter Group. At a later time, the consortium will offer branding and marketing guidelines for the 80 Gbps standard.

The committee approved labeling criteria in September 2021, but manufacturers have so far largely failed to follow them.
