Post 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!!

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...
