index680i thinks:

I knew SATA 3 would come out. Sounds F&*#ing fast to. I wonder how much the drives are going to cost.



About the Atomic article SATA doubles its speed - again

http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/article.asp?CIID=120286

IDF San Francisco: SATA 3 at 6 Gb/s; Powered eSATA

What do you think?

I would assume only solid state drives will be able to make full use of that kind of bandwidth.

That's pretty awesome. It's not a big step at all to have a security station on the way in/out of work - your employees pick up their eSATA-Key on their way in, use it and return it at the end of the day.

I wonder if you could get esata to replace usb or at the very least firewire.

high resolution scanners would benifite from the highspeed data connection

What we really need is a battery-backed RAMDisk.

With DDR2 around $20 a gig, why not?

Meh, here we go again.

From the wikipedia article:

In order to avoid repetition of the common "SATA II" misnomer, the SATA International Organization has compiled a set of marketing guidlines for the new specification. The specification should be called "Serial ATA International Organization: Serial ATA Revision 3.0", and the technology itself is to be referred to as "SATA 6Gb/s." A product using this standard should be called the "SATA 6Gb/s [product name]." The terms "SATA III" or "SATA 3.0", that are considered to cause confusion among consumers, should not be used.[10]

---

I must admit, I think they would've been better off just giving in and knowing that people were going to fuck it up and officially call it SATA v3, that would've been more likely to have been adhered to than "Serial ATA International Organization: Serial ATA Revision 3.0", but still, respectable news sources should get it right.

A 10 or 20GB SSD C drive would be a fine thing indeed.

How much of a performance gain would we see though?

Quicker bootups, yes, some gaming improvements, but what really else would we get from it?

I'm not computer wizz, but I can't imagine this creating massive dents in the average gamer/user's computering pleasure.

There are more than just speed gains. The biggest gain, especially for mobile users is better battery life. But laptops, which mostly have crippled disks anyway, will no longer have to play second fiddle for disk io. SATA 3gbs is for these new SSDs which haven't quite hit the market yet. But when they do, we'll see a new range of mobile computing and technology.

But the battery gain would be from the SSD, what about from the extra fast HDD speed.....

We could use fibre optics instead of copper cables?

A fibre optic SSD would be pretty schmicko

And one certainly wouldn't have to worry about the speed of that connection.
