Default Seagate Barracuda XT 6Gbps SATA-III HDD Preview

On 21 September 2009 Seagate Technology will be the first and only manufacturer to offer a SATA-III 6Gbps hard drive product with the large 64MB cache buffer as the 2TB Barracuda XT ST32000641AS is unveiled. Both combined improvements to burst rate and sustained bandwidth will mark a substantial improvement to the design of Hard Disk Drive (HDD) storage products, and the new technology is expected to give Solid State Drive (SSD) components some serious competition. The Seagate Barracuda XT series is designed for performance enthusiasts such as gamers, as well as small server systems. Additional enthusiast tools, such as the free Seagate SeaTools software, allow users to custom-define firmware parameters to enable performance features such as 'Short Stroke' and noise reduction. In this preview article, Benchmark Reviews reveals some of the improvements introduced with! the Seagate Barracuda XT 6Gbps SATA-III ST32000641AS hard drive.

Find a motherboard with 6 Gbps SATA AND which doesn't connect the SATA with a bus 5 times too small.

On hardware.fr, there's a little news where they point at the fact that the few mobos with 6 Gbps SATA are connected through busses with too few lanes, gimping it to sub-SATA (or SATA II) speeds.

Read it quickly as I will keep my core 2 duo running till I get problems, but that's what I retained from the news.

Just came back from holiday, only read hardware.fr newssite as one of my cats pressed the macro button launching the site ^^ (using all macro buttons just to launch websites )

Trying to catch up with the missed news on all my usual sites takes a bit of time

But indeed, you linked to the same site I mentioned (except I read it in french, never used the english version )

Gimme some time to read all the news posted in the last two weeks.
