USB 3 capable of running @350 MB/s

#1 Post by m^(2) » Sun Dec 14, 2008 1:17 am

A 1 week-old news: ;)

USB 3 is up and running, demonstrated to achieve 125 MB/s w/out fully utilizing connection capabilities. Projected max speed is 350 MB/s. Theoretical max - 640 MB/s.
The difference between theory and practice is about the same as with USB 2.

I feel very disappointed about it, it's going to become a bottleneck for SSDs in a year from the launch. :?

It sucks even more. :x
We should not expect much more than 150 MB/s.
Grrr...not even close to eSATA2.

Well, call me sarcastic, but i'm not really sure if one even would want a bus, that is as fast as eSATA2, with the CPU having to manually "bless" ever f****** byte. If they would do something like this, i'd look for a speedbrake, so that during a transfer-job, the CPU can do something else than babysitting a bus.

Don't get me wrong, i think it's great to have a "universal bus", with standardized and backwards-compatible interconnects and controllers. I just never have been that amazed about the implementation, which's reasoning is more about cutting costs, than being efficient.
