USB 3.0 driver

USB 3.0 is gradually replacing the old USB 2 interface on current hardware. The drivers, however, are neither integrated into Windows XP and Vista still in Windows. 7 This brings the current USB 3.0 Driver Download gradually increasing the transfer rate of the computer with compatible devices.

More speed with the USB 3.0 Driver Download

As a USB (Universal Serial Bus) is called the plug-and-play interface between a PC and hardware enhancements. USB 3.0 convinces with comparatively astronomical data transfer rates. Compared to the old 480 Mbit / s now lure Super Speed ​​mode up to 4.8 Gbit / s, which roughly means a mere ten-fold increase in data throughput. For the new USB chips of course it requires a special driver.

Renesas USB 3.0 driver support for popular motherboards

The USB 3.0 host controller driver Renesas (formerly NEC) can be described almost as a standard, as used by most devices with the USB 3.0 interface controller from NEC. The Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 driver copes with many motherboards and prevents fast USB 3.0 interfaces are driven slowly. Renesas Electronics is to carried out in April 2010 merger of the semiconductor regions of Hitachi, Mitsubishi Electric and NEC. More USB 3.0 you will find drivers for other systems in our download area.

Higher data throughput thanks to USB 3.0 driver

In the Device Manager of the Windows Control Panel, the user experiences that the USB 3.0 driver works properly with your own system. If this is the case, is expected to have a significantly higher data throughput to the USB 3.0 driver download, install and reboot. The following Intel motherboards are officially supported by the Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 driver DH61AG, DH61BE, DH61DL, DH67BL, DH67CF, DH67CL, DH67GD, DH67VR, DP67BA, DP67BG, DP67DE, DQ67EP, DQ67SW, DX58OG, DX58SO2, DX79SI, DX79TO, DZ68BC, DZ68DB, DZ68ZV and DZ77BH-55K.

Fast transfer by the improved USB protocol

First the specifcation USB 3.0 was introduced in November 2008 by the USB Implementers Forum. Among other projects, the company HP, Microsoft and Intel are members. The higher data rates are achieved by the used full-duplex transmission, improved USB protocol and especially through optimized frequencies on the data lines. The gross data rate increases from 60 megabytes / sec to 500 MB / s, which is of course far more places greater stresses and demands on the cable.

USB 3.0 requires new cables and connectors

The cable will need two additional signal wire pairs and an additional ground connection. Therefore, USB 3.0 requires not only new cable, but also new connector on the host and to the connected devices. Thus, the cables are somewhat thicker and less flexible than its predecessor. USB 2.0 Cable and terminals can be connected to USB 3.0 hosts.

Blue color coding of cables and connectors

but find USB 3.0 transfers take place only when the host, cables and terminal equipment also are really three USB-compatible. Otherwise is automatically switched to USB 2.0 down. If you install a USB 3 device, usually used a blue cable and sees the blue color coding on the connectors at the end of the cable and at the ports of the PC or USB hub. On all USB 3.0 cables and connectors regardless of their color to see the USB 3 icon. Please note before installation and use of the USB 3.0 driver the manufacturer's instructions
