The new USB 3.0 is capable of providing a bandwidth of about 5Gbps or around 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB2.0. USB 3.0 is capable of transferring 2.1GB to a 2.5-inch HDD in 31 seconds, compared to the 1 minutes and 9 seconds of USB 2.0 in the exact same conditions. This allows for faster transfers of high definition data, such as movies and videos, as well as various other large capacity file formats. It also charges USB-chargable devices with 900mA, faster than the 500mA of current USB 2.0. Finally, the USB 3.0 helps to extend battery life, suspending operations when it is in idle mode.
