I mean besides the fact i could probably transfer files falser on all my external hard drives faster what else can USB 3.0 provide more power for??? seems like does not give much of a performance increase as most think? maybe im wrong.

yea but i think flash drives are using its max speed already its not like the drive in there runs at 7200rpm for it to be bottleneck by the usb 2.0!! same goes for phone!!

SSD + USB 3 + SATA 6 GB/s all gonna be nice combo..

Usb speed will be 4.8 gigabits per second. That, is nice..

What are you talking about? Usb 2 = 480Mbps..

In the future SSD is only going to improve..

USB 3.0 has 4.8GB/s data transfer speed vs 470MB/s on USB 2.0. that being said, 5GB of data being transfered through USB 3.0 is real fast.

Negatory.

USB 3.0 is 4.8Gb/s, or 400MB/s. USB2 is 480Mb/s, or 60MB/s.

Be VERY careful with this.
B = Byte
b = bit

USB 3.0 = 4Gb/s, NOT GB/s (which is about 500MB/s)

Big difference (8 times, actually).

how about they worry about improving their prices for SSDs before they advance the speed again for the consumer market


seems like a good technology but it probably won't be fully utilized for a while unless people have external HDDs that are 10000rpm, or external SSDs, or have phones and ipods that have internal SSDs

it sohuld be awesome for wireless usb adaptors though

I know this, but 5GB will still transfer quite a lot faster w/ USB 3.0.

Your looking at seconds w/ USB 3.0, while w/ USB 2.0 your looking into minutes, possibly hours. Thats a little over exaggerated, but its a somewhat good idea.

i think your confused its gigabits not gigabytes so its really only about 600 megabytes per second

5GB/s is optical fibre territory...
its not really megabytes for 2.0 its megabits its only about 58 megabytes per second for 2.0 you divide it by 8 bit and byte are completely different
