Naast IBM is nu ook Maxtor begonnen met de levering van ATA-100 compatible harddisken. De modellen DiamondMax 60, DiamondMax Plus 40 en DiamondMax VL 30 zullen compatible zijn met de interface. Hier een gedeelte gepeest uit dit verhaal van CNEWZ:
Maxtor Corporation today announced that the company is now shipping Ultra ATA/100 DiamondMax(TM) IDE hard disk drives. Maxtor's DiamondMax 60, DiamondMax Plus 40 and DiamondMax VL 30 hard drives can support data transfer rates of 100 MB per/second in all systems that support the new Ultra ATA/100 standard.
``Maxtor is shipping these drives today,'' said Mike Cordano vice president of worldwide sales at Maxtor. ``Maxtor's new line of hard drives makes the company the first in the industry to support 5400 and 7200 RPM drives that can transfer data up to 100 MB per/second, an increase of more than 50 percent when compared to previous generations of technology.''
The new line of Ultra ATA/100 DiamondMax IDE drives includes a new reliability feature called Maxtor Adaptive ATA Control. With this new feature, the drive senses changing environmental conditions and customizes the ATA timing to improve the interface reliability. Maxtor's Ultra ATA/100 implementation provides data integrity by performing cyclic redundancy checks to detect transfer errors between the system and the hard drive.
