The third-generation USB will transfer data at speeds up to 4.8Gbits a second which is ten times faster than USB 2's 480MBits.

USB 3 ports and cabling will be designed with both copper and optical cable capabilities, meaning even higher speeds will be possible in the future.
 
It will be completely backwards compatible all previous USB implementations.

Let's couple that with external hard drives, DVD drives, DDR3 memory, and you can load a movie or game onto your PC in a heartbeat without a single seam.

Impressive.
