Do I really need this giant hollow empty air flow container for cooling overrought video cards, or connecting a bajillion USB 2.0 3.0 cables to?

Really? Giveth thee not a fark about my desktop / upgrade needs / audio issues / cooling / whatever?

Give me a break, pls.

I had been playing around with the idea of building a new rig this September to replace my aging two year old gaming rig; however, with the recent announcement of this new spec for SATA and PCI, I'll hold off until early next year. Only four more months away, I can wait!

They should just mashup all of the specs into USB 4.0. All of your components go into those slots and so do all of your flash drives and peripherals. that would be cool.

so what, do we just have dummy slots on the motherboard and 24 some-odd sata-express ports, and we run up to 16 to each graphics card and one or more to each harddrive and use the rest for external peripherals ?

So in otherwords, a way to compete with Thunderbolt...

No way -- this here's the spec that could slay Thunderbolt:

By the way, Mars Volta rocks.

Not unless it's an eSATA Express... lol!  Thunderbolt is an external based spec using external devices unlike SATA which is an internal based spec.
