Feature Request: USB3

Maybe the Hero6 could be offered in two versions?
One with USB2 for all folks who have stoneage hardware
an one for those whowould like USB3 speed...

I'd go 4 it!

Yes I do.
Should I have RTFM?
Sorry, the cable that ships with the GoPro has no blue markup,

so I guessed it was an USB2...

Re: Feature Request: USB3

Well ... this is just the cable! But it's the SOIC (or chipset) in the camera that needs to have USB3 performance.....

If offloading content via USB-C takes to long simply put the uSD into a USB3 card reader. But performance will be less than USB3 anyhow due to the limits of the flash on the uSD

I use a US3 card reader.
