Op Glide Underground hebben ze een review geplaatst van de DiamondMax 6800. Dit is een ATA/66 schijf van 27.2GB.
Lees hier de rest van de test.
The new 6800's are now equipped with new, faster 100Mhz SDRAM, as well as a 2MB buffer plateau, which finally catches them up with their competitors. Of course increasing the buffer above 512K hasn't proven to cause a great performance increase. Also new in the 6800's, are Maxtor's new "DualWave controller", which is said to copy the performance architecture found in many SCSI devices, which "improves drive and system performance through a 90% reduction in drive command overhead."
ATA/66 is a new feature among hard drives. The only problem is, there are very few motherboards that can support this new feature, the ABit BE6 being the only one that I know of. This means that unless you want to get the full performance of this drive, you'll either need a new motherboard, or an expansion card such as the ABit Hotrod 66, which will cost you an extra $60 (approximately). I've heard some reports of ATA/66 drives not working at all unless you have a ATA/66 controller card, but I tried the Maxtor drive on my ABit BX6 2.0 motherboard, and it worked just fine.
