I was reading this article about the next iteration to USB-C ports. It says that the new standard will double speeds from 5 Gbps to 10 Gbps.
It also says:
if you just bought a brand new computer with USB-C port, like, for example, the 2016 MacBook Pro that I'm using to write this article, you're pretty much screwed.
But according to Apple’s website their USB-C ports support up to 40 Gbps data transfer speeds. So this is 4 x faster than what the above article is saying about the new USB standard.
Can someone explain this to me? I am confused.
