USB will probably remain dominant for external devices, although eSATA will become more common, and SATA will still be the rule for internal devices. dvd creator, dvd video tool

You can always add a SATA card in an intel board.

What abot esata flashdrives. I have a 32gig one, so when 6.0 comes out, it will still only go 3.0 speed right, or will it speed up to the 6.0 spec?

I dont understand why 250mb read speeds are hitting the max 3gb can handle. Like how I have a 10mb internet connection but it always maxes out at about 1.2mb/sec when I download something. Thanks in advance for not being rude.

The SATA 3Gbps speed is 3.0 GigaBITS per second which rounds to approximatly 300 MegaBYTES per second (3Gbps = 300MBps)

 So a 10Mbps net connection is roughly 1MBps (little b is a bit, big B byte)

Got it?

I want to see 8Gb/s.  Why? Becuase thats 1GB/s, a nice speed.

Intel doesn't look like it's going to support sata3 until 2010, that's a bummer, because i'm going to buy a new pc (hopefully) at the end of this year, and i'm planning to add SSD (maybe in a year or two) and sata3 could be just a deal breaker for me.

Oh well, phenom II ain't so bad ;)
