I've read before in the forum something like this
Currently (performance) ATA100 = ATA133 = SATA 150
So they mean to say that no matter If I choose S-ata over IDE , there will be no speed difference yet?
But later if speedier drive will come out, they will definatly come with S-ATA and no more IDE ??? Am I correct in assuming that??
I currently have 2 Seagates (2MB buffer, 7200 RPM) and they work fine, I had someone tell me that the newer seagate S_ATA (8mb buffer, 7200rpm)are a lot noisier, can you confirm that?
Eventually drives will be faster, but you have to remember they only double in transfer rate roughly every 5 years!
Newer SATA drives and controllers support NCQ which can reduce seek times.
