This was originally going to be the "USB and FireWire Performance" page, but the FireWire controller flaked out on us during testing. Apparently there is some sort of an issue with SP2, although I'm not sure if our problem with the board is related. Nonetheless, we have no FireWire scores to share with you unfortunately. Had this been a shipping board, I might have been upset ;)
