Upgrade to the storage now hopefully IDE will be killed off still don't understand why it's still around SATA is much better for less cabling and better air flow.

Floppy is still around

That sata upgrade doesn't do much since hd speeds isn't even close to sata 1.0. Maybe once fast SSD will show they will able to take advantage of that interface.

Lots of legacy IDE stuff around.

Regular drives cant even go past sata1 let alone sata2.

This new technology will be beneficial with SSD drives going forward though.

IDE is SATA


but yeah, drives aren't even hitting 3gbps yet, so ...no real advance IMHO.

Yah the old tech is PATA... both are IDE


Anywho,

I suppose the real gain of this is for large scale server systems. Only need a couple of ports on a motherboard and you can run multiplexed storage arrays through a single cable to the motherboard 6x80MB/s STR drives in raid0 all running through a single cable, sweet.

Needed for RAM SSDs - they may work as fast as the inernal controller and bus allow to push data. Otherwise not needed yet.
