If I were to attached a 3.0 four port hub to my pc does anyone know if there will be a performance hit attached to doing this ?.

Will the 4 attached devices still perform the same as if they were attached individually to 4 separate usb 3.0 sockets on the pc..?.

The performance of any devices connect to the hub will be restricted by the speed of the USB port through which it is connected.

Yes there will be a performance hit, whether or not you'll notice it depends on what you're using the hub for. You should also keep in mind whether the hub is capable of powering all the items you're planning to connect. USB 3.0 is reasonably fast so for most basic things using a hub won't have negative impacts.


Personally I have a 10 port hub and a 4 port hub, and couldn't survive without them, as I have a laptop with only 2 USB 3.0 ports. :(
