Intel introduces USB3.0

Intel says that the data transfer rate for this would be around 10 times more than that of usb2.0


but my question is when we connect a usb2.0 to a usb1.0 device the speed of transfer reduces a lot, but intel says that USB3.0 is downward compatible to both USB2.0 and USB1.0, so in this case will it be able to provide us the same speed which they say its gonna provide, or not...??

I doubt you'll get faster speeds from a USB 1.0 device because you've plugged it into a USB 3.0 bus, no. The device's speed will still be limited to the speed of the technology it was built around.

I'm guessing they mean that you'll still be able to use your old devices with the new bus, same as you can with USB 1.0 devices on a USB 2.0 bus.
