There will be a small increase.

The main advantage RIGHT NOW is no cable clutter/ better airflow. Alslo, data transfer over s/ata is more reliable.

The BIG gains are to be had in the FUTURE though.

Now, we have s/ata 150

Later there will be s/ata 300 an even 600!

I've seen drives burst at higher...don't remember which, though.
The point of serial ATA is its easier to use (better cables, no jumpers,) more upgradable (the 300 and 600 bit,) and more reliable (the error control.)

ahem, kaerf control in aisle 1 please

Still nowhere near 150, or 100 for that matter.

At least 7200 rpm drives

they've made great strides with 10000+RPM IDE drives in the noise category. i doubt the noise could bother me much in any case. especially when i live near people who blast their music.

Hard drive's have become much much faster though, if you think about it. A 5400 RPM hard drive today will outperform just about any 7200 RPM drive released a year or two ago. I think the key lies more with Data Density rather then RPM"s. Or solid state hard drives. Once we start getting hard drives with 100+GB platters, then we'll be talkin. Also lots more cache wouldent be a bad thing.

Regards,
Mike

Another thing about SATA, as I understand, is they can not be slaved. Period. Only one drive per channel. But that shouldn't be a problem as I'm sure mainboard manufactures will ship their boards with 4 seperate SATA ports.
