  1. for a usb3 device to achieve its maximum speed you need a usb3 device plugged into a usb3 port using a usb3 cable. Even then you will run at the slowest speed of the 3 which is usually the device.

    That leads us to 'Which device are you plugging into the usb3 port?'
  2. I am connecting my sea gate HDD which is usb 3.0...........I have connected it with a 3.0 port of hp elite book and it is giving a transfer rate of around 80 MB/s there
