USB-C is getting yet another specification.

The new type of USB4 will continue the USB-IF’s questionable naming scheme that only its members and a thumbtack-and-string-covered corkboard can truly appreciate. When it’s all said and done, it seems you’ll be able to find USB-C ports that are USB4 Version 2.0, USB4 Version 1.0, USB 3.2 Gen 2x2, USB 3.2 Gen 2, USB 3.2 Gen 1, or USB 2.0, plus some will opt for Intel Thunderbolt certification. And in the case of USB4 Version 1.0, you’ll still need more information to know if the port supports the spec’s max potential speed of 40Gbps.

screaming intensifies

Can’t wait for usb-c 4 2.0 gen 2x2x2 thunderbolt certified cables 🙏

We all have been there, haven’t we?

Real question is what colour is the port gonna be.

Rainbow of course

they must have some nefarious reason behind naming the USB standards in such a dog shit way… I refuse to believe anyone who thinks this is good exists
