How many days would that typically take (assuming you set x to whatever would be reasonable for a large (2-3 Gb) whole genome assembly) and what sort of sequence volume are we talking?
In my post on the "disruptive technology" thread, I came up with about 200kb per pore per hour:

This was from an estimate of GridION processing speed of 10Gb per day on 2000 pores ("tens of gigabases per day"). Just for comparison, using this 10Gb estimate the MinION (which has a run-time limit of about 6 hours, and 1/4 the number of pores) should be able to process about 600Mb before the reagents run out.
