Yet.

1 GB movie file = SD resolution. Who wants that? If we use the official space wasting codec that we find on obsolete Bluray disks, we're talking 50 GB. If we're talking about x264 1080p, then we're talking 9 GB.

I can't wait around for 1.8 - 10 seconds.

Bottleneck will still be the hard drive.

Unless you have a SSD...and they're getting cheaper.

Of course I can't have it, this is America, where competition is unjust

At 43 tb/s, all that will really change is the wording of the sentence to, "Bottleneck will still be the SSD."

I didn't read your link, but I'm assuming you're talking about that group that could be fast enough to see orders going out from source A, then they would go and buy that order and sell source A before source A could ever get to the market.  All because they spent millions on laying some kind of fancy connection to the market.

Sustained

write speeds of SSDs and HD aren't THAT different. It's the latency and random-access reads/writes that make SSDs awesome.

Samsung 840 EVO, 250GB SSD: 520 MB/s
Western Digital Black, 7200RPM, 1TB: 150 MB/s

Yup, HDs have been holding back computers for a long time now.  SATA Express doesn't really seem that impressive either.

Forget the HD. I don't think there is any piece of hardware such as a CPU or NIC that can process that much data in that short a time frame. Maybe many pieces on that pipe, but one? I think not. I didn't see anything in the article that said what the end points on it were nor how they achieved it. I bet it was something like they sent light down it that was the "equivalent" of that much data and not actual data.

I just wanted to verify your claim, and I did, but it was surprisingly difficult. SSD pages will gladly tell you throughput but HDD pages typically point out that they use SATA III. That isn't very helpful.

If hard drives can't write data as fast as they are transferring it, how do they know they are transferring it at those speeds?

Can God create an internet so fast that even his PC can't make the most of it?

There's a lot of ways to store data that are orders of magnitude faster than hard drives, they just tend to be less permanent. RAM, for example, is much faster than a hard drive. CPU cache is much faster than RAM.
