At least that is what you hope for. I've seen many USB3 threads where people are disappointed that their transfers aren't much better than they were before. I've been using eSATA for a while now and I've been very happy with that. About 80-90MB/sec is what I get with my dock.
I have a USB3 device that I can plug naked drives into by sitting them in it like bread in a toaster,(2,5 and 3,5 disks) it is very handy as I can use old drives that I no longer want in my PC.
Speeds.......It starts off like a rocket with speeds up from 200 MB/sec but soon slows down to what I would call normal SATA speeds similar to your posted 80-90 MB/sec.
Not what is advertised but still a huge improvement over USB2
