Do I really NEED to know anything at this point?
yes yes you do.
Oh. OK. Thanks for clearing that up.
I can sleep soundly tonight.
I will keep that in mind
W00T USB 3.0 FTW
Ah technology ya godda love it
Sounds awesome. I only wish we would be getting this sooner. That's one pit fall of following trends in tech is that you will read something and be like AWESOME but then realize you won't get your hands on it for a few years.
Dang...and I thought eSATA was fast! My only concern is that whether or not the new 5 line design will allow more bandwidth to be accessed during access-times on the device in question. Assume that I'm downloading a 5GB file from the External HDD, while uploading a 500 MB file to the HDD. eSATA did a pretty good job with this without alot of hangups. I know what the article says, but projected-estimates are always something not to rely on solely.
I wish I knew as much about my hardware as you seem to.
"One example Intel likes to give out when talking about the new speed is that transferring a 27GB HD movie to your future media player will only take 70 seconds with USB 3.0, while it would take 15 minutes or more with 2.0" One problem. 4.8gbps is 600MB/s. Show me a harddrive that can read or write that. In fact I have a 4 disk RAID 0 array and that can only write 264MB/s max.
