[TechReport] SATA 3.1 spec brings swap standard, improved TRIM

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Highlights of the 3.1 spec include new power-saving measures, TRIM performance improvements for solid-state drives, and miscellaneous tweaks. In the words of the SATA-IO press release...
  • mSATA – SATA for mobile computing devices, now with enhanced auto detection to provide increased interoperability by eliminating the need for a dedicated mSATA connector
  • Zero-Power Optical Disk Drive (ODD) – eliminates the power consumption of an idle SATA ODD, resulting in increased energy savings
  • Required Link Power Management – drives energy efficient power management across all SATA devices, reducing overall system power demand
  • Queued Trim Command – allows SATA SSDs to execute Trim without impacting normal operation, improving SSD performance
  • Hardware Control Features – enable host identification of device capabilities, allowing hosts to make more effective use of SATA devices
Another noteworthy addition is the inclusion of "completed [design] requirements" for SATA Universal Storage Module (USM), a standard for swappable SATA drive modules that can fit into a wide range of devices, from TVs and consoles to PCs and drive docking stations.

Question though, do all the older sata cables still work with the newer standards?

Up until now the cable has stayed the same throughout the revisions, so I doubt SATA 3.1 will be any different.

A9: The same cables and connectors used for current SATA 1.5 and SATA 3.0 Gb/s
implementations can be used to connect SATA 6Gb/s devices, although SATA-IO recommends
quality components be selected to ensure data integrity and robust operation at the faster SATA
6Gb/s transfer rate. Keeping the existing SATA connector form factor enables SATA 6Gb/s to
be designed into the same cost-conscious hardware architectures while minimizing
infrastructure changes.

Good thing I didn't upgrade from SATA 2 yet lol! Amazing news! I can't wait to upgrade actually, perhaps to a nice SATA 3.1 SSD.... whenever they come out.

I wonder when SSDs/Motherboards with SATA 3.1 support will hit the market.
I was thinking of buying a Vertex3 MaxIops 120GB.. But, If Vertex4 with SATA 3.1 is somewhere around the corner..
