USB 3.2 will Absorb the USB 3.0 and 3.1 standards

This is going to get confusing...



Read more about USB 3.2 absorbing the USB 3.0 and 3.1 standards.

I wish we could just have one standard for everything external that needs a cable. One cable to rule them all... But it's probably never gonna happen

Just call it USB 4.0 and stop all this 'USB 3.X Gen X' nonsense!

Well if we used thunderbolt more often it'd be much easier. It's faster anyway lol

Which thunderbolt, 1 2 or 3? If 3 should we use low power, single port or double port?

Well 1 and 2 are dead. So really left with one option... And then single port for cheaper devices and double for more expensive. Easy peezy

AND Thunderbolt isn't made for charging = Useless as the "standard" interface.

Thunderbolt 3 has the same practical speed as USB 3.2 Gen2x2 atm with most on market controllers & cables, both use the theoretical maximum number of lanes with the maximum theoretical transfer rate per lane with current high end Type-C cables(You need pretty short & thick cables to hit T3's theoretical max with copper), and both are designed to be usable simultaneously with the USB Power Delivery spec for upto 100W of power on active cables, but obviously they go about it in different ways suited for different applications, Thunderbolt could never be the defacto standard though because the reason USB maintains all the lower speed modes as part of the most recent specs is because for many devices the higher speed versions would blow the power budget massively while generally being massively overkill for the realistic transfer speeds from most hardware while also adding significantly to unnecessary cost.

Similarly, this is the thing stopping us from having truly cross compatible cables, for many applications a full-featured USB Type-C cable is overkill, particularly for just charging devices & stuff, and in order to keep costs reasonable bundled cables will often only provide the traditional USB2.0 spec wires within the Type-C cable or similar, but fortunately labeling is getting better for that.

Thunderbolt will never become standard because it's proprietary and Apple/Intel will not open it up for non-Intel certified hardware, cancelling out most of their competition immediately.

USB has been adopted in too many industry sectors and rely on it being an open standard, Apple/Intel would never make such a thing open.
