Steve Jobs – No USB 3.0 Until Intel Adopts It

Oct 31, 2010 by

Steve Jobs (CEO of Apple Inc.), replying to an email received from an Apple user, has said that he “doesn’t see USB taking off.” In his usual fashion, Jobs’ reply was short and to the point.

“We don’t see USB 3 taking off at this time. No support from Intel for example.”

USB 3.0 is the latest iteration of the global standard peripheral interfaces. It claims to deliver speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. It has already been implemented on many high-end gaming systems.
A top hardware manufacturer has said that Intel is looking to adopt USB 3.0 by late 2011, meaning we could see some USB 3.0 ready Macs by 2012.
