    ...around the SuperSpeedPlus transfer rate support of 10 Gbit/s for USB 3.1...
    New in USB 7.5: HyperSuperSpeedPlusTheWorldWarriorTurboChampionEdi tion

      Is TRIM supposed to work now (with the UAS protocol)?

      If not, the interpretation of that 10 Gbit/s figure will have to continue to be that it's going to nosedive after a certain amount of gigabytes written to that poor SSD in the other end.

        It would just be nice if USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices could co-exist on the same USB 3.0 hub... :-(

          USB 3.1 can also be used with Intel Thunderbolt.

            Does that mean TB3 support? Better TB support under Linux would be nice.

              Do you mean that when you put in an usb 2.0 device in a usb 3.0 hub it becomes an usb 2.0 hub for every port?

                Not directly.
                Thunderbolt 1 and 2 had one connector, but Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB Type-C connector.
                However, I believe that I have read somewhere, sometime ago that Linux was getting better Thunderbolt 3 support.

                  Yeah, whenever I see naming like that I automatically think about A Tanenbaum's categorization of network speed .

                    What are you referring to? My web searching skills are failing me right now …
