Super7.net heeft een artikeltje in elkaar gedraaid over de nieuwe UltraATA/66 standaard. Hier is een stuk:
By increasing the burst transfer rates of IDE drives, Ultra ATA/66 brings the effective transfer rate of the systemís bus and a driveís internal data rate into a much closer balance. Ultra ATA/66 allows system designers to provide greater system throughput, particularly for long sequential transfers required by multimedia applications. It is a known fact that host data transfer rates must exceed media data transfer rates or else performance is reduced because of additional revolutions due to buffer full/empty conditions on reads/writes.
