USB has been the de facto connector for external computer peripherals in the past 15 years. Its newest generation, USB3, has been gaining popularity during the past year and now it’s time to take a look what it has to offer. We will take a look at two addon cards; one that fits desktop computers PCI-E slot and one that fits laptops PCCard slot. Along with them we will also review the Kingston Datatraveler HyperX 3.0 USB Stick and see how much better it performs than a traditional USB2.0 stick.
