Mac Pro and iMac to get USB 3.0 and Faster FireWire Soon

A Firewire 800 Cable

HardMac is reporting that updates to the iMac and Mac Pro will be coming soon, and will include USB 3.0 as well as a new, even faster version of Firewire. Firewire 800 is the current version, and it’s far faster than USB 2.0. Apple, the creators of Firewire, will be keeping up with the USB 3.0 release with one of their own. Will it continue to be better than USB in terms of speed and reliability? That’s yet to be seen. But looking back, Firewire has always one-upped USB, despite being one of the first companies to adopt it. We can probably expect this to continue in the future.
