Maxtor driving harder with Serial ATA

Maxtor has announced its hard drives will now support Serial ATA (advanced technology attachment), a new storage interface replacing the Parallel ATA interface.

Said to increase hard drive performance to 150 megabytes per second, Serial ATA is designed for data-intensive environments such as audio and video, consumer electronics and entry-level servers.

Serial ATA is compatible with existing parallel ATA software and drivers, and provides hot-plug connections for CDs, DVDs, tape devices, high-capacity removable devices, zip drives and CDRWs.

Maxtor Serial ATA hard drives will be available in Australia and New Zealand at the end of September 2002.
