Hello there ...

happy new year.

ok, with USB 2 it was never a great idea to use external storage for performance critical tasks -due to limited bandwith and CPU overhead of USB.

Did USB3 improve in the CPU overhead department as well? 

For my new mac I am thinking about which way to go for sample drives - USB3 or eSATA over TB .... is USB3 a valid alternative by now? or is it better to go eSATA?

thanks,

best
