Faster SATA standard coming in second quarter of this year
The SATA 6Gb/s standard is coming in the second quarter, says Conrad Maxwell, SATA-IO marketing chair.
SATA drives now make up nearly 100 percent of the desktop and notebook PC markets, and has 30 percent penetration in the enterprise market. But the connector is still catching on in retail retail PCs and external boxes (now at over 25 percent). And E-SATA (external SATA) penetration on channel motherboards is up to 60 percent.
A big growth area for E-SATA: 85 percent of new laptop PCs gained E-SATA in the second half of 2008, thanks to the use of a clever two-in-one USB 2.0/E-SATA port. This port didn't originate from the SATA-IO standards group, but has clearly gained significant traction.
