Peripherals which probably can't operate at 1.2GB/s (provided you don't
have a SAN in your home).
This *is* the beowulf list.. I wouldn't make many assumptions about the computational horsepower at people's abodes...
A peripheral that most people have in their home with that kind of data rate is a DVI (or HDMI) interface to their TV. The Clock pair runs at 25-165MHz, RGB Data on 3 pairs at 10 times that rate. 24bits/pixel at a rate high enough to display 60 frames sec at 2.5 megapixel/frame.
I think it works out to around 4Gbps...
