Usb 2

Please can anyone help me I have an abit USB backing plate which came with my abit kx7 333 motherboard and is USB 1 and it is connected to the USB header. Can I use this USB backing plate on my new motherboard which is NF7-S VER 2.0 which is USB 2 if yes will I get the high speed of USB 2 throw it or only the speed of USB 1 and are they wired up differently.

Many thanks for any help

usb 1 and 2 have the exact same wire settings and wire materials

If there isn’t any additional hardware in the plate, the speeds will remain on USB 2.0 speed. If this backplate has some kind of hub-functionality, it’ll probably change the speed to 12Mbit.

So is it safe to say that most USB 1.1 cables will work just fine at 2.0 speeds?
