USB 3 KVM Switches are Keyboard-Video-Mouse Switches that utilize USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 connectors for the switchable usb hub, or for the keyboard and mouse connections.
USB 3.0 is the third major version of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard. USB 3.0 (up to 5 Gbit/s) provides TEN TIMES the capability of USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/s); it also provides up to 900 mA power instead of the 500 mA available with USB 2.0. USB 3 connections are backwards compatible to USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.
USB 3.1 SuperSpeed (USB 3, Gen 2) Specification adds a 10Gbps speed mode that uses a more efficient data encoding and will deliver more than twice the data through-put of USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is also fully backward compatible with older USB connectors and cables such as USB 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1.
