So really the future of Motherboards will not come with with the next generation of SATA ports, just hopefully there will be a SATA Express card with it. The SATA Express can go up to 16 Gb/s right now, and since PCIe technology can improve, so can SATA Express.

While this might be old news to some, I just figured this out after the supposed Intel 9-Series Chipset will support SATA Express with their Broadwell CPU.

Hopefully the pricing won't be to high.
They already exist. Its called a RevoDrive
