D-Link's product page indicates that this device has a USB 2.0 interface.

Despite that, it is clearly shown with a USB 3.0 jack (also w/ blue color) in the FCC photos.

It's marketed as an AC1000 device.. which appears to be 650Mbps capable w/ 802.11ac and 300Mbps w/ 802.11n.

The FCC test report indicates that this device will be used for a DWA-182 revision (rev. B1 / Bx?). It is also notes that the devices are electrically identical.

There is a USB ID (2001:330e) for an RTL8812AU device named as the DWA-183 found in the driver set for the Edimax EW-7822UAC.
A later driver set (1023.5.0116.2013, for the Elecom WDC-867U3) has two D-Link 8812AU USB IDs...
