You have already migrated to Windows Seven? (Windows 7) Probably yes, but not all. Well, I tell you that Windows 7 is gone.

In 2012 there Windows 8 comes with support for new technologies, including, USB 3.0 is simply ten times faster than USB 2.0.

Ever wondered what it means? Is that if you invested money in full high definition camcorder, which transmits its data via a USB 2.0 port it is outdated, because the new camcorders can trasferir for their data capture software with a speed 10 times faster.

You also no longer need to run media such as DVD movies. You can do it from the pen drive as indeed is already possible with the USB stick 2.0. 8 Even the windows will be installed from a thumb drive.

It was pretty obvious that Windows 8 would support the new USB 3.0, but today Steven Sinofsky on Windows blog Building 8, confirmed that the next-generation operating system will support USB 3.0 The blog says that by 2015 all new PC will support USB 3.0. Here is what Steven posted on the blog:

With transfer rate up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and improved power management which results in longer battery life, USB 3.0 provides convincing reasons to improve the interface of the PC world. By 2015, all new PCs are expected to offer USB 3.0 ports, and more than 2 billion of new USB devices will be sold that year alone.

Because USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0, you would be able to copy an HD movie from a USB storage drive in about 80 seconds instead of 15 minutes it takes with USB 2.0 transfer speed will be around 5 Gbps.

Some camcorders have an old door that has the names of FireWire (translation: fire wire) because the camera needs a data transmission speed to high to transfer the recorded movie without loss of frame (frame). The first had a FireWire transfer rate of 400 Mega bits per second, or 400 Mbps, but with the advent of USB 2.0 were overcome as the USB 2.0 reaches 480 Mbps. Then came the second generation of FireWire with 800 Mbps.

A fight is only good when the audience also wins. It is not today that the group fights USB FireWire with the guys to see what technology transmits data faster. FireWire has the advantage in this race, especially the standard FireWire 800, capable of transmitting data at nearly 800 Mbps (USB 2.0 the rate is 480 Mbps). On the other hand, USB gains in the number of users, since it is present in a greater number of devices.

But then here in September 2007 announced the project of USB 3.0, which would make appearances in experimental mid-2009 and reached the market in earnest in 2011. It is estimated that its data transmission rate may be 4.8 Gbps. This is due, among other things, the use of fiber optics in their specifications.

Well, it's clear that companies involved with FireWire are also working to launch a new version of the technology. This past week, major information technology began to speak of such a FireWire S3200, whose main attraction is the ability to transmit data at a rate of 3.2 Gbps. A respectable amount, obviously, but significantly lower than the standard USB 3.0 promises.

It's kind of strange to enter a fight with a handicap like that, huh? Not so. The S3200 FireWire standard is being developed based on their previous specifications, which means no drastic changes so as to cost of implementation is high. In addition, this will ensure compatibility with previous standards.USB 3.0, in turn, may be more costly to implement, since their specifications are quite different compared to previous standards, which can result in more costs to the industry and more time to adapt.

A good fight, as each side has its strengths and weaknesses, but you know what? The truth is that a technology can not kill the other. USB 3.0 will rely on its excellent market acceptance, 3.0 and FireWire will continue with the support of industry giants, especially of Apple, his "mother". Moreover, the user who watches the fight is there to see their preferred technology evolve, not to see the other falling. And smile, that's what we will soon.
