This green cable may look just like any other USB cable out there, but you would be shocked to know that it can transfer data by up to 800Gbps.

The cable takes advantage of 64 fibers, with 32 each for transmitting and receiving. Each are capable of transferring data at 25Gbps. If we multiply that, it can go up to 800Gbps on both directions. At the end of the fibers is an MXC connector which is miles slimmer than a common ethernet cable head.

Despite this development, don’t expect to get your hands on this cable anytime soon. The real purpose of this cable is to be the one used to interconnect cables in supercomputers and data centers. In the future, it will replace the 10Gbps cables used to connect switches, etc.
