Dear Team,

Hers has a quick question.

If the source of USB is GEN2. Should I change the source to Gen1 ? Or your hubs chip will be automated to do it?

Many Thanks


  • Hi Jimmy,

    Our USB 3.x hubs do not support Gen 2 speeds, they are 5 Gbps only (USB 3.2 Gen 1).  If connected to a Gen 2 port, the port speed will drop to the lower Gen 1 speed.
