If I made this happen would that change your mind?

You want that, I can make it happen, watch!

Obviously you are lagging in data........SCSI Ultra320 is working and out.
SCSI Ultra640 works in theroy and models.

SCSI requires a 4X ratio to disk IO to HOST IO.
Thus you will reach the limits of physics and E&M but not before you
wallet dies. SCSI will have very little on ATA in the near future......

Give me 6->12 months and I be I can match SCSI 1:1........
