serial ata
has anyone heard much about Abts new serial ata motherboard? Abit have the IT7-Max 2 out, which basically just adds a black PCB and serial ata. Serial ATA is supposed to rock, but I've never seen a serial ata hard drive for sale!!

They are not, and they may not be for a while.

There is one SATA HDD out now (or will shortly be out), but it's from some manufacturer no one's ever heard of, and I don't think anyone's willing to take a risk like that jumping on some unknown company's drive...

Cant be worse than IBM drives, can it?

Seagate is bringing one out this fall, I'll be tempted to pick it up (Seagate Barracuda V, with 8 megs cache :) )

Will it use fluid bearings?

Ive used a fujitsu drive with those.

REALLY quiet drive... even at seek

NeoGeo 07-29-02 07:43 PM

any idea of the performance from that ? gotta be quite a beast surely :D

PCarr78 07-29-02 07:47 PM

It won't be much better than today's 7200rpm ata-100 or 133 drives.

NeoGeo 07-29-02 07:52 PM

whys that then!? the Abit board out with the serial ata support provides upto 1.5Gbits/sec bandwidth! thats quite a bit!!!
