USB Type A connector Upgrade . from 3.1 Gen 1 to 3.1 Gen 2
#1
    Motherboard GL 553 VD


I run an NVMe external and looking at tree view I thought" would it be great if it could process a little bit faster like thunderbolt on my Mac" so I look in tree view and that part.

make me think that maybe on that GL 553VD the controller is supporting Gen 2 speed of 10 GB/s .

I look into the the Asus doc and for my laptop a GL 553VD it is USB - A 3.1 Gen 1 ( the USB - C is also 3.1 Gen 1) , so I got few USB- A and USB-c 3.1 Gen 2 connectors , on the C the blocker were at a different [place as show by the red circle . I would like to be sure I won’t burn my board before doing it  on the USB A all pins match just the position should be SMT instead of RA ( right angle) but I couldn't find TYPE A 3.12 Gen 2SMT ( OR type a 3.2 gen 2 are they are call now) so I have to content with RA ( the top pic show the new RA on the left versus the current SMT )

I got 2 questions ,  the first I believe to change to Gen 2 connector might give me in increase transfer speed , but I could be wrong I just don't know that much on the USB controller on this board,  it is just base on USBTre view ...

and 2 looking at the pic of the old and new USB-c , if i remove that little plastic bloc ( circle in red) then I can solder all the pins just find .. Are those 2 block just in place for positioning or do they indicate some kind of polarity..?

So I welcome any comments .... if this work, it could definitely be nice as I have 2 external drive, it would double the transfer speed and could useful to other Asus 553 owner..

How would the controller know you changed the connector? The only coding is on the CC1 and CC2 lines and that would be on the pcb not in the connector itself afaik.

To me looks more like cat5 vs cat6 network plugs, the newer just offer better signal integrity to support higher speeds, but you can run a 10g connection on a short cat6 cable with a cat5 plug the 10g nic would never know it was a cat5 plug.
