ZED camera USB compatibility

I should suggest the right laptop configuration to my customer for an application I developed; I wonder if ZED can be connected to a USB 3.2 port or if the laptop should have a USB 3.0 port. That’s because the new laptops based on NVIDIA RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 are very new and normally they are equipped with USB 3.1 or 3.2 ports.
Thank you very much,

Hope this is still relevant for you.

I ran into some issues with that exact configuration (RTX 3070 2x3.1 1x3.2). At first, the camera was having trouble, and it always wanted to be plugged into a 3.0 port, it acted as if connected to a 2.0 port. Neither Ubuntu 20.04 nor Windows seemed to work.

The fix was a new cable, I used one that came with my monitors. The cable it came with raised the problem, a “proper” USB c to USB c cable (with adapter if needed) did the trick for both OS.

Hope it helps.
