Although I have used them for some time I still get confused over USB ports, the different speeds and connector sizes… Does a USB Standard Size port mean that it can only run at USB 2 speed or might it it also be USB 3 speed (or 3.1)?
I am referring specifically to the two ‘large’ ports on the 10X keyboard, are they in fact speed 3— I think I have read somewhere that they are. Is this correct? I know all ports / devices are backwards compatible and that a speed 2 device will run but not at speed 3 if connected via a 3 port. I don’t think I have seen the large square ports / plugs ever described as speed 3 apart the case referred to above. Have I misread this?
If the two large ports on the keyboard are not speed 3, if I want to run speed 3 device s will I have to use the micro ports on the left edge. I have a Card Reader and a Hub which are speed 3 but have so far only used them as if they were speed 2. How can i check what speed a port is capable of?
