Where did you get that info Peter? SATA 3GB/s? That is so wrong.
"Drives are rated by how fast they can read and write data. An Ultra ATA drive is rated at 33.3 MB/sec, while a SATA 300 has a data transfer rate of 300 MB/sec. "
What is Data Transfer Rate?
And from this site here...
TechExams.Net - A+ TechNote: ATA/IDE/EIDE/SATA
IT says this:
"SATA can transfer data up to 150MBps (and will likely advance to 300 MB and 600 MB per second in the near future), making it, in theory, faster than parallel ATA (now also referred to as PATA) using UltraDMA mode 6 running at 133MBps."
So wherever you heard 3GB/s let me know. So i can go there and tell these people how stupid they are. **** even Wikipedia says it
Serial ATA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Taking into account 8b10b coding overhead, the actual uncoded transfer-rate is 1.2 Gbit/s, or 150 megabytes per second (MB/s).
So please tell me you are joking when you said 3GB/s. Cause that is so wrong. When io have shown 3 sites now and there are plenty more on Google that say this as well.
