    Yeah, I think you can rest comfortably for at least another year until it pops out, but it is indeed very impressive. I mean, transferring a 25 GB HD movie in less then 70 seconds is impressive.

    whilst this would work in theory I dont think Hard Drives are yet up to this transfer speed.. I know Solid States are starting to show promises of transfer rate but its going to be a while before storage catches up to transfer rate... just look at gigabit ethernet and copying files.. yes its faster but you cant max it out copying 1 file like you would hope.

    I wonder how it will fair with latency, its one thing to send huge ammounts of data in a short time, but its another thing to achieve really low latency. I look forward to seeing how it performs with usb 3.0 soundcards

    That'll be the first major benefit for our kind! Even still, the USB 3.0 will be backwards compatable which is nice to see.

    Well.. actually hard drive band-with is not exactly the root of the problem...
    It's the FSB (Front Speed Bus) that is the bottleneck.

    USB 3.0 will be a sweet test now with Intel's new I7 chipset. FSB architecture is gone now.. and Intel'sQuickPath Interconnect, delivering up to 6.4 GT/s should be interesting...

    I'm not sure which problem you're referring to. At any rate, the FSB (it's Front Side Bus) has nothing to do with the data transfer rate of one storage device to another.
