This major update will enable USB 4 Version 2.0 to have speeds of up to 80Gbps using a USB Type-C cable and connector. For reference, the first version of USB 4 can handle up to 40Gbps.

Aside from this, compatibility won’t be an issue because USB 4 version 2.0 can still work with today’s current hardware.

40Gbps is already fast, but 80Gbps is an extremely fast transfer speed. To wrap our heads to this speed, 80Gb (Gigabit) is equal to 10GB (GigaByte), which means transferring a 10GB file using USB 4 version 2.0 will only take 1 second, in a theoretical manner.

As of now, there’s still no announcement when USB 4 version 2.0 will be available for consumers, only developers will have access to this sweet technology in the meantime.
