USB-IF wants everyone to use its more human-friendly terms: USB 2.0 is USB Hi-Speed, and the version 3 variations are USB SuperSpeed 5Gbps, USB SuperSpeed 10Gbps and USB SuperSpeed 20Gbps. According to USB-IF, USB 3.2 is set to be called USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 and is the successor USB 3.1 Gen 2, which is now called USB 3.2 Gen 2. USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 - aka SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps - requires two lanes of 10Gbps operation, which combine for the maximum 20Gbps rate.
The USB says it is very important that vendors clearly communicate what USB 3.2 spec is present on the device packaging, advertising content and in any marketing materials. If you're one who isn't quite ready to embrace all-wireless listening, we've got you covered on ...
The good news is that two years after it was first announced, USB 3.2 - or, er, "SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps" is finally on its way to devices.

Part of the problem is that we don't see a lot of consistency in messaging. For example, USB 3.1 Gen 1 is now known as USB 3.2 Gen 1.
The SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps logos are still in development, but chances are high that they'll just change the numbers. To avoid overwhelming the consumer with technicalities, USB-IF suggested a separate marketing nomenclature for each standard. Peripherals that take advantage of the fastest transfers supported by the new standard might not even become available until late 2019 or 2020. 5Gb/s devices are now "USB 3.2 Gen 1". The USB ecosystem has expanded to include multiple connectors, performance levels, and power capabilities to meet the needs of manufacturers and developers. This increase in transfer speed is achieved by placing another 10Gbps data transfer channel within the connector, which is only possible in the Type-C format that is all but taking over smartphones and laptops. Being a specification-setting group, the USB Implementers Forum does not name companies that develop actual chips.

Here's another term you'll likely encounter: USB Power Delivery, or USB PD.
