usb 3.0 is the next major revision of the ubiquitous Universal Serial Bus.

Nope though USB 3.0 is backward compatible i.e. u can use 2.0 devices in 3.0 ports u will get the peak speed permitted by 2.0 which is 480 Mb/s
compared to that of 3.0 devices which is 5 Gb/s.
Since the change is in hardware a software upgrade wont help. You may connect a usb 3.0 add in card provided ur motherboard has free slots.
Hope that was useful….
