USB gets simplified naming, but exceptions remain

The SuperSpeed ​​branding for USB ports is being deprecated in a new USB Implementers Forum naming scheme. The USB 3.x and 4.0 indications will also be omitted from now on in the communication towards consumers. In the new logos, the maximum throughput is used to distinguish the different generations. USB-C cables are given an indication for the maximum charging capacity.

The new names are already a lot clearer than USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 or USB4 Version 2.0, but not all information can be found in the new designations. For example, there are no official logos for Display Port Alt Mode support or PCIe throughput. Of course there are also exceptions, for example USB 2.0 keeps the designation Hi-Speed, because USB 480Mbps would be too confusing. USB 1.0 also remains the same.

The new names should be on packaging and connectors before the end of the year. Since USB is an open standard and there are also old cables in circulation, not every device will be provided with the new logos at once.
