USB2 / Firewire card reader faster than PCMCIA ??

Anybody know if the USB 2 or Firewire card readers work faster than the pcmcia adapters -- especially when loading 4GB of camera files to computer using the new 4GB microdrives / CF cards..

Loading pics to computer quickly is important out in the field. -- I never use the Camera's own USB connection BTW -- far too slow for peofessional use.

I've triied to find data transfer spec of PCMCIA as opposed to firewire / usb2 but can't get any reliable data.
