Yes, there is now a USB 4 protocol standard

See the description below; it apparently presumes a Type C connector.

As I understand, Type C is a connector standard not a protocol. In the EU, as I understand, is required on all new devices regardless of the USB protocol that the device uses.

So Paco's new iMAC, (I'm jealous), uses USB 4. Perhaps the questions are (i) whether old cables inherently transmit USB 4's 40+ gbps or greater, and (ii) whether the connector adaptors, as mentioned by AbeCollins, "throttle" that 40+ gbps.
