thunderbolt is 10gb while sata 6 is 6gb. so would it be faster to hook all your SSDs up using thunderbolt than internally with sata 6?

edit: looks like sata 6 is still faster than the fastest SSD.

No reason to use Thunderbolt for internal drives. Instead, remove the middleman interface alltogether, that is, hook up SSDs directly to PCIe. A single PCIe 3.0 lane does 8Gbps...
