The new standard is capable of speeds of up to 80Gbps, double that of the original USB 4's 40Gbps. What's more, your existing USB 4 cables that are already capable of 40Gbps speeds can benefit from the bandwidth upgrade once it's available. This is particularly impressive as you can essentially enjoy faster speeds without having to buy new cables and connectors.
