USB 2.0--Part 2 of 5
Because the new USB 2.0 specification calls for new controller chips, your current USB-ready PC will not operate at USB 2.0's faster data rate over the USB bus. However, you may be able to purchase a separate USB controller add-on product that overrides your current USB controller.

If USB 2.0 is something you feel you need, consider a new PC purchase toward the end of this year and the beginning of the next when new USB 2.0 controller chips first appear in new systems.
