I have the late 2012 27 inch iMac with four USB 3.0 ports

 

My question is, can each of these ports run at full USB 3.0 bandwidth INDEPENDENTLY of each other?

 

I want to plug a device such as Kensington's SD3500v Docking Station in to one of my USB 3.0 ports and want to make sure that won't adversely affect the speed/bandwidth capability of the other free USB 3.0 ports on the back of the iMac.

 

Thank you for any concrete facts anyone can provide. I have been unable to find the answer on my own.

 

I'll be going into an Apple store tomorrow to ask a genius if I can't find the answer out online.


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), 24 GB RAM
