Most the numbers that are presented are theoretical, and many factors will also limit those numbers even further. Thats not a problem for me.
[QUOTE=tmc8080;2694909]The killer app for this bandwidth is streaming video and competing with other standards such as HDMI, SATA (ESATA), etc. USB 3.0 is completely adequate for the applications we use today so, going from 640 to 1280 does nothing for the consumer as they can’t fully use the 640 bandwidth up yet. Make usb 3.0 cheaper first… there still is a premium on usb3 products.[/QUOTE]
I agree that most of the users will not benefit from this, as many arent able to get the max of their USB3 ports.
USB3 flash drives are know very cheap and have acceptable read/speeds, and even back in the USB2 days, if you wanted to get the max of your flash drive (and your USB connection) you had to pay something extra to get a premium drive.
This this the way that it was, and probably it will remain the same for a long time.
What I hope that this will bring is much faster and larger USB3 flash drives, and hopefully be able to use this extra bandwidth to boost the system performance. Maybe a flash drive to be used a cache drive to improve productivity, or simply have it as a boot drive for your portable installation of your OS.
That’s all assuming that we will be able to see speeds close to modern SSD’s and sizes higher than 64GB.
