It will be interesting to see what speeds are actually achieved with this drive. I think the NAND read/write speed, particularly write, is currently the bottleneck even in USB 2 flash drives. The cheap NAND and controllers they use in most flash drives is lucky if they can write at 20 MB/s, which is well within USB 2 speeds.

It would be an advert if they were providing links directly to supertalent's online store to purchase them. Quit whining.
This looks very promising and can actually become very useful. The way I look at it is that with SSD's now becoming so cheap it makes perfect sense to simply carry your HD with you from PC to PC. Simply plug it in using USB 3.0 and go. Albeit an SSD isn't exactly portable, but it does offer the read write speeds to perfectly match up to the new USB specs.
I want the SATA standard and the USB standard to find common ground/merge. No reason for 2 competing standards. 1 single backwards compatible all encompassing serial standard that provides speed and power should be implemented, at least until fiber optic/powered stuff becomes affordable (which Intel is working on).
Ludicrous speed! hahaha, that's great. I think then all the thumb drives will come out in one colour: plaid. They've gone plaid! 200 MB/s, eh? That's out doing a lot of early SSDs already. Are we perhaps reaching an end to multiple interface motherboards, instead of having SATA, PCIe and PCI, will everything be run through a USB controller?
