Well the USB 3.2 specifications have been published and announced by the USB-IF(1). So now that's 2, USB 3.1(gen 2) channels link aggregated and called USB 3.2 for 20Gb/s of transfer speed.

Does anyone have an idea if laptop makers will provide enough PCIe bandwidth to support 2 full USB 3.2 controllers that do not share bandwidth and how many PCIe 3.0 lanes it would take to provide say 40Gb/s of bandwidth to say a dual USB 3.2(4 USB 3.1 gen 2 channels) controller.

I'm not seeimg to much adoption for even USB 3.1 Gen 2 on laptops currently and how many PCIe 3.0 lanes does it take to support one TB3 controller without limiting the TB3 controller's bandwidth(40Gb/s).

Can you test the Marseille mCable with an SNES or NES Mini? I'm curious what processing it would do to a 2D image.
