New Firewire & USB Technology

Posted by squirreling on December 14, 2007

New firewire spec boosts transfer rates up to 3.2 Gbps.  Compare to USB 3.0’s 5.0Gbps.  Firewire will be able to transmit data over 100m (pretty nifty compared to USB 2.0’s measly 15m).  USB 3.0 goes optical.  Both remain backwards compatible.
