    Default USB 3.0 (5gbps transfer full duplex)

    Enjoy.
    Ed. anyone have any ideas on how this could affect us? midi ain't much to move, but perhaps latency might drop on soundcards?

    At the moment it doesn't mean a thing. Without devices on both ends supporting it, USB 2 is the best you can do. I suppose a USB 3 sounds card and hub might be a little quicker, but without your PC/Mac supporting USB 3, there's no difference.

    This makes me very curious as to when PC motherboard fabs and Macs are going to have USB 3. Might be a good time to wait a little.

    it would be cool if wireless protocols stepped up their transfer speeds. bluetooth soundcards, controllers, headphones (these are already a reality though).. imagine never having to deal with cable management. i think it's where the emphasis should be. just like the Clear networks are working replace all forms of "physical" DSL/cable/fiberoptic lines and turn internet access into a huge wifi network.
