25GB in 70 seconds with USB 3.0

Now that's the kind of speed I would like to see when I try to transfer data from an external storage media to my hard disk or vice-versa. "At the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) 2008, USB-IF President, Jeff Ravencraft revealed that the new specifications for USB 3.0 would be fully released on November 17 at the SuperSpeed USB Developers Conference in San Jose. The USB 3.0 architecture is also named SuperSpeed USB due to its incredible 5 gigabit per second (Gbps) data transfer speed. The USB 3.0 specification guarantees an increased performance of 10 times compared to the capabilities of the current USB 2.0, providing a bandwidth of 600 MB/s second. Devices employing USB 3.0 specifications are planned to be available to consumers in 2009 or 2010 and would be backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1." I guess we all will have fun, once these devices are launched.

Holy coolness, coolmailraj! That really is. Which reminds me, computer engineering(etc.) people are already developing Flash drives that could replace the hard drive as our main (internal(?)) computer storage media.
