[citation][nom]Snipergod87[/nom]I dont know why I would want a drive based on USB 3.0 as opposed to being an internal drive, just doesnt make sense to me.[/citation]
It's just a extra big extra fast flash drive to carry in your pocket.
The SATA and USB, and perhaps even the next PCI iteration, should be merged... Find a way to be able to bypass the CPU when necessary with USB, and provide a powered universal interface for peripherals and storage devices that is backwards-compatible with both...
I see no reason to keep the benefits of unpowered SATA with the flexibility of USB separate.
Nice, but no price? Also the problem is that USB 3.0 outlets are still found on the back of the motherboards and not in the front of the pc casing which will make it a tad more annoying plugging in esp if ones desktop is on the floor
