The most difficult part about investing in new technology is the risk and initially low volume. There is a large gap when migrating from USB3.0 from USB2.0 regarding measurement needs. It's difficult to find a host that is adequate enough to record real-time performance in all of the industry parameters. We have the issue of having the cart before the host, yet this never hinders the progression of leading edge technology. Wherever someone said we couldn't, we now live with light, thin-paneled LED TV's for instance that use a fraction of the energy of most other TV's. This article does a fantastic job of specifying the exact requirements for sound measurements of USB3.0 activity. As our technology gets faster, so our measurement tools must become more sophisticated to ensure sound measurements. It will be interesting to see how design companies whose focus is testing adapts to these major equipment investments.
