It seems the 15" and 17" MBP will be upgraded within just a few weeks with the new ivy bridge chips from Intel. There might be new Thunderbolt controller chips in them as well. My guess is the optical drive (DVD) may be gone too.

Sonnet EchoExpress Thunderbolt Adapter SxS Speed Tests. | XDCAM-USER.COM

It's about 3 to 4 times faster than connecting via USB.

Hi Alister

Ok great thanks.. look forward to reading your blogs..didnt know about XDCAM user.com

And thanks to Sony for the software for the SXS cards.. Iam really surprised at how fast they have actually done this.. I was thinking at least 6 months..

Thanks
