Compared with USB 2.0, USB 3.0 will be more energy efficient. In addition, USB 3.0 is backward compatible, support USB 2.0 devices.

USB 3.0 is compatible with a standard, supports common I / O interfaces, and will be optimized to reduce energy consumption, while improving the efficiency of the computer protocol, consumer goods and products in the field of mobile products that support the ability to move fast synchronization that supports both optical and digital component specifications, and with the ease of use and plug and play features traditional USB technology.
