Does anyone know the actual specs of Firewire (400) vs USB 1.1? I use an Intel notebook, and I was using a diagnostic program and stumbled across some interesting numbers and wondered if they are correct. It is telling me that the USB controllers (I have two) are operating at 48Mhz and they have two channels each. The Firewire/1394 controller (I have one) is operating at 12800Mhz (or 12.8Ghz!) and has 64 channels! I know that there is a major speed difference, but I didn't know that Firewire is that fast! No wonder Apple routes it directly into the system controller! Hell, I have a 1.4Ghz P4. That is about 8 or 9 times faster than my processor! Just thought it was an interesting figure, and I wanted to see if anyone knows for sure, or if anyone has a diagnostic program that can tell them the speed of their controllers so we can compare.
