That's what I calculated as well. SATA 6Gbit is the same speed as Thunderbolt... The article is slightly misleading. However, the scalability of speeds they are claiming is to be noticed. SATA is limited in bandwidth capacity, and the idea of using copper and optical in a unified inexpensive cable to transmit data at a theoretical maximum of 100 Gbps is something to watch. One of the last pictures says 10 Gbps or 1.28 GBps is currently available (I'd like to see it) which is a nice speed boost from SATA-6.
