The USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) has announced new branding guidelines for the various supported data speeds and charging ability of USB cables and devices. Instead of version numbers and brands like SuperSpeed, the USB-IF now wants manufacturers to simply write out the maximum supported data speeds and charging wattage directly. For example, SuperSpeed USB 3.2 should now be referred to as "USB 10 Gbps", and USB4 should now be expressed as "USB 40 Gbps". USB-C cables should add the maximum power delivery wattage they support for charging, such as "100W".
