Yeah wasnt there some grumblings about it not being implemented on the upcoming AMD chipsets?

Anyway wicked fast, cant wait to see it hit mainstream.

Firewire is superior to USB due to the better sustained datarate it can provide.
That is one of the reasons firewire is in use in professional devices vs USB.
(not to mention the highly efficient peer-to-peer, full-duplex, non-polling data communications protocol with very low overhead)

4.8 Gbit/s is USB3.0's burst date rate...
Any idea what USB3.0's sustained full duplex data rate is?

Well with a bandwidth of 500 MByte/s (over 2.0s 60Mbyte/s) is pretty snazzy stuff. Your 25GB movie file will pass through in 70 seconds, down from ~14 minutes with 2.0. Well it kill firewire, I doubt it. I think Firewire still has a life as long as hardware manufacturers continue to support it, especially in pro solutions. Apple's stunt to eliminate it on their initial Unibody MB & MBPs were not very well received, so it seems there's still plenty of life left for it. But for the consumer market this is suhweet stuff.

Yeah well Firewire won't be around that much longer anyways, couple years max. Google it!

It would be a bad move to kill firewire.. What would the pro industry use then?

Accoring to firewire wiki:

Future enhancements (including P1394d)
A project named IEEE P1394d was formed by the IEEE on March 9 2009 to add single mode fiber as an additional transport medium to FireWire.[23]
Other future iterations of FireWire are expected bring a bump in speed to 6.4 Gbit/s and additional connectors such as the small multimedia interface.[24]

The only problem is that even with today's storage mediums, we will never reach that speed for a while. I don't think they have to make another USB standard for quite some time.
