      Doron said "USB3 is supported by Microsoft on win8."

      I download the newest spec of RNDIS and It doesn't refer to USB3.0:

      I want to know whether winXP/win7/win8 can support RNDIS tansfer over USB3.0?

      Thanks.

  • anything pre w8, no. 8 and above, the driver is not aware of superspeed features, but could still take advantage of faster bus speeds

  • Every USB 3 port is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.  So in that sense, a USB 2.0 RNDIS device is of course compatible with a USB 3 port -- the device just uses the EHCI controller on the 3.0 port.

    We have not tested a USB 3.0 device that communicates via the RNDIS protocol.  I have no idea if that would even work. We do not officially support USB 3.0 devices using the RNDIS protocol.

    RNDIS is not under active development, so it is unlikely that we will officially add USB 3.0 support in the near future.
