The USB Logos
Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No
These logos define the versions, and their use must be licensed by the USB Implementers Forum. The SS20 logo was created and included to provide continuity for the 20 Gbps version, but it is not an official USB-IF logo. DisplayPort requires USB-C cables (see USB Type C
). See USB-IF
The SuperSpeed logos may be present with the USB version or by themselves. Most people are aware of the version and not the logos.
