Interesting Article from INTEL about USB 3.0 RFI Impact on 2.4GHz Wireless Devices

Recommended Posts

Seems like a relevant read for those using a in-built wireless adapter on their music server which also contains USB 3.0 Ports, in use or not.


I am using a GEN5 INTEL NUC as a ROON Core server which came with a built-in WiFi/Bluetooth adapter. I have disabled those devices within the BIOS but left the USB 3.0 Ports enabled. After reading this article I will be also disabling all the USB Ports which happen to be of the USB 3.0 variety. The one graph in the article showed a low level Wideband signal still present from the USB 3.0 Ports even without anything connected to them.


In my setup I'm not using the USB Ports on the NUC so shutting them down in the BIOS could potentially remove a few more veils and increase SQ. After all, thats what its all about. Off I go with Display-port to VGA adapter in hand :)
