Although USB 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2 standards have not yet completely conquered the market, it seems that we (the Users) are already getting ready for what comes next, USB 4.0 Gen1.
USB 4.0 aims to simplify the platform, which became a real mess after the release of standard 3.0.
Therefore, despite the great advantages of USB 3.0, its nomenclature was anything but clear, which ultimately did not help in adopting the technology. So, to make the whole process easier, USB-IF decided to call SuperSpeed USB 3.0 (5Gbps) USB ports, SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps USB 3.1 (10Gbps) ports and finally USB 3.2 Gen2x2 20Gbps USB ports. So what about the new USB 4.0 ports?
The official USB 4.0 standard aims to deliver all the benefits of USB 3 through a single USB-C connector.
In short, compared to the now 'old man' USB 3, the new USB 4 is not just focused on speed! Although increasing significantly in the same dual-simplex architecture.
That is, USB 4 will offer a major upgrade in the way peripherals communicate. So with the new standard, host-connected peripherals will be able to share available bandwidth.
In addition, the new platform will also retain compatibility with current USB and Thunderbolt products. Also bringing to the table 100W charging and support for two 4K (60Hz) displays.
The designation of USB 4 is 'USB4', despite changes in the nomenclature of previous standards.

Processors may be about to have a brutal Boost!
If you don't know the Moore's Law, says a processor will double its transistor count every 2 years. What is clear, will result in a brutal performance increase in the same amount of time.
However, for some time now this 'law' has been violated… Thanks to the limits of what is the most widely used material in today's processors, silicon.
