How can Apple praise USB 3.0 when they already have Thunderbolt? That is the question that has been confusing a lot of folks lately. First of all, the Thunderbolt is renowned for its speed, that’s why the USB 3.0 is no match.
However, in case the speedy Apple Thunderbolt fails to take off sometimes, the new MBP will be there to assist. Apple has affirmed that they will be sticking with Thunderbolt because of its new high speed interface for connecting peripherals, e.g. input/output cards, and monitors in the new MacBook Pro and iMac.
This is now quite evident that Apple might be snubbing the USB 3.0. Additionally, other makers of desktops and Windows laptops have been sluggishly rolling out of the USB 3.0 ports on their devices. On the other hand, Windows-based PCs using Thunderbolt ports are still going strong like never before.
Quite a number of analysts have already predicted that the battle between the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt is going to be the next big thing. It makes sense though because both these interfaces have been making headlines, therefore it is worth having a glance at how they are doing, head-to-head.
