    This is pretty fast but most people don't even a Net connection of over 50 MB/s and it would require some pretty good hardware, like a really fast Hard driver to take advantage of the speeds, but for servers ETC the cables could handle thousands of PCs and data devices.

    That's 12.5 GigaBytes per second! Most desktop hard drives strain to offer 80 MB/sec. Really, this sounds like some nice connectivity for a Virtualized Server farm. But that's not going to stop me from wanting this to my desktop!
