Maybe Haswel's chipset will actually catch intel up to AMD with the number of SATA3 ports and more USB3 as well.
If they had done something like that for the x79, I would have upgraded.
Its not the size its how you use it.

I'd rather two SATA 6gb/s ports that I can USE for raid SSDs (the only thing that needs sata 6gb/s) vs a bunch of ports that A) are lower performing and b) have less than optimal drivers (ie no TRIM in raid).

YMMV
