Windows w końcu obsługuje nowy standard USB

Forest festival. Windows finally supports USB as it should

Windows 11 users have finally received an update that introduces support for the new USB standard.

Although the USB4 2.0 specification was ready at the end of 2022, there are still no devices on the market that support this standard. This may change soon, as the latest Windows 11 update finally introduces its support.

USB4 2.0 in Windows 11

The USB4 standard allows data transfer at speeds of up to 40 Gbps. Quite quickly, but this is not the end of the range. For many months, manufacturers of all types of equipment have been able to use the USB4 2.0 version, which doubles the transfer up to 80 Gbps. So far, they haven’t done it very willingly, but thanks to the Windows 11 update, this may change. Users will finally have a place to use such speeds.

The new update is already available for the stable version of Windows 11, so it has either already appeared or will soon appear on all users’ computers. USB4 2.0 support is available in the system versions marked as 22621.3235 and 22631.3235. This makes it possible, for example, to support external SSD drives with speeds up to 3800 MB/s (such a model was recently presented by ADATA).

In the same update, Windows 11 users will be able to edit photos taken with an Android phone on their computer. When both devices are connected via Bluetooth, your computer can send you a notification for each new photo, allowing you to edit using the system’s cropping tool.
