I have an amazing USB transfer rate when I use
unity. But when I am running
gnome with i3 or only
i3, I get terrible USB transfer rates. How to fix this?
i3 is a windows manager, and not the processor.
Check the USB Driver version. In case your USB device 2.0 --> Port 3.0 means its supported 2.0 Speed, Its depends upon your motherboard specification / USB port manufacturer. So its will depend upon your motherboard.
Don't mention I3 it is the Processor of your system,
So check the motherboard. In-case 3.0 below > > older version means update the motherboard hardware.
