Five Gigabits/sec works out to be 625 MegaBytes/sec. (5000Mbs/8 = 625MBs)

"Data bandwidth" simply refers to how much data ("information") can be transferred per unit of time. More bandwidth is better because it translates into less time to transfer a given amount of data; for example, a 2 gigabyte (2GB) video from your internal hard drive to a USB flash drive. You can do the math to see that USB 3.0 will transfer that file in 3.2 sec; USB 2.0 in 33.3 sec; USB 1.0/1.1 in 1333.3 sec.

And speaking of progress, It would be very helpful to have an article similar to this one about internal ports. Cover issues like the PCI, PCI-e (versions), AGP, USB pins, Audio pins, CD/DVD audio connector formats, lack of pin info for the owner's manual, backward/compatability for xpansion slots (can you put a PCI-e card in a PCI slot or a PCI-e 6x in a PCI-e 2x slot with the proper drivers and how to identify all those slots/pins). There needs to be a way to get this info without having to get a new Bachelor's Degree every 5 years. This kind of "progress" has gotten out of control. Or is this the new "Highway Robbery"? What are we to xpect in this area? Thanks. DennisRLevesque@GMail.com
