Yup, dat lees je goed: Seagate heeft een ATA/66 versie van z'n 7200rpm Barracuda SCSI monster uitgebracht. Storage Review heeft een review van het ding:
So, what's the best drive around? The Quantum Fireball Plus KX is "faster" in Windows 9x, the operating system voted as "most important" by readers in a recent StorageReview.com survey. The Barracuda ATA, however, is "faster" under Windows NT, the technology found in the upcoming Windows 2000. It should be noted here that the term "faster" really is a farce; the drives virtually deadlock in all categories. ThreadMark places the Barracuda ahead; by now, however, regular readers should be aware that we don't weight ThreadMark results highly. What else distinguishes the two? Both turn in decent heat and noise levels. The Barracuda ATA will boast an incredible street price of $299. Notice the word "will." As of the time of this writing, we haven't yet spotted the drive offered from any retailer. Seagate claims the drive will ship "very soon." If it makes it out within the next couple weeks, it'll possess an $80 price advantage over the competition. If not, competition from other manufacturers will arrive en mass, and who knows what that'll bring ? Bottom line: The Barracuda ATA certainly is one heck of drive; we hope it hits general availability ASAP.
De snelste ATA/66 schijf van dit moment, in WinNT/2000l! (en alleen al vanwege die koele naam wil ik dit ding in m'n PC hebben ).
