I just created an account to ask the following question here, but I have seen most of the LTT shows on YT (well, not the newer ones (last half year) and those that look too much like drama).
Anyway, why I ask it here?
This is a thing that might require someone to grab a few usb3 hubs and just test it (and maybe make a YT video about it when you run out of topics XD).
Ok, so here is the question:
Say I have an external USB2 HDD (read/write speed is limited by the USB2 protocol) and a USB2 webcam.
Now I connect both to an USB2 hub and start my video stream while also accessing the HDD.
the HDD access speed will be slowed down by my camera due to the shared USB2 connection between the hub and the PC.
But what if I use an USB3 hub?
Will both devices be able to run at full speed (only limited by the individual USB2 limitation)?
Is that ensured for all USB3 hubs or are there some 'good' hubs that do that and some 'bad' ones that don't.
Thanks for your help.
