4.8 giga bits (data transfer is in giga bits a second) divide by 8, and you get 600 mega bytes a second, which would be like burning a cd in 1 second.

Now all we need are fibre optic hardrives and CD Burners,That would be sweet! Although im not sure how a fibre optic CPU would work.

i think it did say that it would be backward compatible with copper wired USB i.e. USB 1.1 and 2.0

and i dont think that in the time it would take to change the signals from the Northbridge and CPU from a digital signal to a beam of light then change the beam of light back into a digital signal and process it would be that much faster, if anything it would be slower, than just a copper strip in the motherboard

then again if you had multiple CPU is a huge server rack and had the motherboard further away it might work...lol
