USB3 -vs- USB3 Superspeed ?

  Furkin 11:40 20 Oct 11

Just a quickie,

I've just ordered a replacement hdd for my lappy. I'll be using the old drive as an occasional 'External' one & am looking for a cheap USB3 caddy.

I have now seen items classed as USB 3 and USB 3 Superspeed. For e.g: Dynomode have two similar products (possibly; USB3-HD2.5S-1B & USB-HD2.5S-3.0) – one is classed merely as USB3, and the other as USB3 Superspeed.

Regardless of brand - generally - is there an actual difference between these two descriptions ?

In 2007, Intel demonstrated SuperSpeed USB at the Intel Developer Forum. Version 1.0 of the USB 3.0

As USB 3 has to be done to a standard they both mean the same thing.
