What is the difference between USB3.1 and Type C interface?
USB 3.1 is an industry standard initiated by major companies such as Intel. The biggest feature of USB 3.1 is that the data transmission is extremely fast, and the theoretical speed can reach 10Gbps. The USB Type-C is a connector specification consisting of a Type-C plug and a Type-C socket.
In the latest USB 3.1 standard, there are three interface styles, one is Type-A (Standard-A, the most common USB interface style on traditional computers), and the other is Type-B (Micro-B, the current mainstream Android smartphone The interface style used by mobile phones), and the other is Type-C (that is, the newly designed interface style mentioned above).
Then we should be able to understand it easily. Although USB Type-C is designed based on USB 3.1, it does not mean that all devices using this connection must support the USB 3.1 standard; contrary to what we think, for older For devices with the old USB 3.0 Type-A interface, it is compatible with the USB 3.1 standard.
USB 3.1 is a transmission standard.
And USB Type-C is an interface standard.
So there is no absolute correlation between USB 3.1 and USB Type-C.
Having a USB Type-C interface does not necessarily mean that it supports the USB 3.1 standard. The USB 3.1 standard does not necessarily mean the USB Type-C interface.
The main difference: USB Type-C has a higher transmission speed, can be plugged in both front and back, and has higher charging power.
