Hard drives are the primary bottlenecks in today's high-speed computers, and this is partially
due to the limitations of PATA. Since Serial ATA is a completely new and faster standard, there
will be an industry wide move over to new hard drives,controllers, and connectors-essentially
everything will move to Serial ATA.
150 Mbyte/s maximum transfer rate ( 300 / 600 MByte/s envisioned for the future ) between
two SATA I (150Mb) devices, capable up to 4.5 Gbyte/s Hot-plug capability ; Two power saving
modes : partial and slumber Overlapping (commands) ; Tagged command queueing Smaller,
longer and more flexible cable and Smaller connector.
- Maxium Transfer Speed : 150 MB/S (Up to 4.5 Gbs)
- Maximum Length : 1 Meter
- SATA I & II Specification Compliant
- Note : The Maximum Transfer Rate is 4.5 Gbs for The Cable
