NP930QAA NOTEBOOK 9 USB TRANSFER SPEED?

NP930QAA NOTEBOOK 9 

What is max transfer speed of the USB 3.0 port? The manual doesn't say, but the Samsung product page says; "1 USB-C™ [up to 5Gbps*, 4K display out with optional adapter, Charging] 1 USB3.0"

but that appears to refer only to the USB-C port.

 

What about the USB 3.0?

This article says it 5 GBPS; 

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/usb-3.0-usb-3.1-becomes-usb-3.2,38699.html

 

For USB-C, is 5GBPS really the max? (also from the article, maybe 20 is possible, depending on the external device.?

 

The reason for the question is Samsung just announced the T7 SSD, supposedly 2x the speed of the T5, but looking closer at the specs the max read/write speed of the T5 is 540 MB/s;

Bootom line, can the NP930QAA take advantage of the higher speed of the T7, and what is the best port to use?

 

Thanks
