    It's USB C to USB 3.1 Gen 2.

    There is no SS or blue pin indicator, but this is indeed USB c to USB 3.1 Gen 2. I tested it with drives that got read/write of 950MBs/950MBs which is in the gen 2 range of up to 1250MBs.

  • I think it would have the "SS" on the USB end if it were USB 3. So my guess is USB 2.0.
