USB Type-C came into the limelight when Apple announced its all-new MacBook, which will feature this new type of connector. Now Google has also come forward and announced that its Chromebook Pixel will also feature this new USB standard.

Increased data transfer speed

Since we are talking aboutthe new USB standard, then how can we forget to talk about the data transfer speed? USB Type-C offers a transfer rate of 100 Gbps, which is double that of USB 3.0(5.0 Gbps).

Also the cables will offer 20 volts and 5 amps of power, which means that devices will now be able to charge up in less time compared to its predecessor USB 3.0. Faster charging and faster data transfer speeds are really the plus points of this new standard.

Now since the USB Type-C standard is new, its adoption will be slow. So if you need to connect your old USB devices to this new port, then there will be dongles available which will help you do that. For example, if you want to connect your USB 3.0 USB flash drive, then you can with the help of an adapter.
