Re: How fast is USB 3?


So going by the video, realistically we can expect to see something around the 200MB per second mark.

And you don’t have to have Windows 8 either to run USB 3, as long as you have the drivers for the PCI e card or motherboard (if the USB is on motherboard) it should work fine in XP, Vista and Win 7.

200MB/s is 1.6G bit. Or 1.6 times faster than giga bit ethernet or 16 times faster than 100 mega bit ethernet .

Where you at? I have giga bit LAN/ethernet .

Oh yep, I thought Data was quoting MegaBits (Mbps) rather than MegaBytes (MBps). 

I think I am around ethernet, mines a hybrid - Mains Network LAN and Wireless.  I reckon it is sub 100Mbs though.  Fast enough for my purposes atm.

You know, combine this with an SSD or two, GB LAN, and a nice quad core 64 bit CPU with 16GB RAM, and... and...
