[Neutrino Bridge] Can I use a regular USB 3.0 cable and still achieve the full speed?

Yes, you can use a regular USB 3.0 cable with a Micro-B plug on one side and depending on your host computer, either a USB Type-A or USB Type-C connector on the other side. To achieve the full speed of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, we recommend using a short cable preferrably under 50cm but no longer than 1m. Depending on the quality of the cable, some cables might be slower than others.
