It is possible to transfer 25GB of data in only 70 seconds
What a load of BS!!!
You must be catering your news to the iSheep who will believe anything
25 GB in 70 seconds?
I wonder if they have any stats to back that up?
Who are you to say that the USB 3.0 can’t deliver those speeds? It seems unrealistic, but so does everything in the computer world.
Does an Expresscard slot have near the bandwidth to support that speed?
[QUOTE=UTR;2536370]Does an Expresscard slot have near the bandwidth to support that speed?[/QUOTE] An ExpressCard slot has a theoretical bandwidth of 2.5 Gbit/s, which corresponds to 25 GB in 80 seconds, but I don’t know how close to the theoretical bandwidth you can get in real life.
There’s probably no existing drives that can transfer anywhere near that fast.
The bottleneck should be the speed of the laptop’s internal HDD.
[QUOTE=mciahel;2536396]The bottleneck should be the speed of the laptop’s internal HDD.[/QUOTE] Only if you’re copying to the internal harddrive, which is often but not always the case.
If the internal “harddrive” is actually a high-performing SSD, it might not even be the bottleneck in this scenario.
