adamw Posted December 11, 2004 Report Share Posted December 11, 2004 Yeah, SATA's extra speed doesn't actually make a blind bit of difference in 99% of cases - SATA's theoretical peak is 150MB/s, ATA is 100MB/s (or 133MB/s with Maxtor's non-standard extension), but as you can see from the results we're getting most hard disks don't even make 50MB/s. If you had two very fast hard disks and you copied something large from one to the other...it might be a tad faster on SATA than ATA, but that's all.
