This is why obsolete tech should be moved off of current boards released. Things like IDE, PS/2, and E-SATA should all be dropped in support for better oboard sound, USB3, Dual Gigabit LAN ports, etc. My current MSI 990FX motherboard only has rear USB 3.0, so it saddens me. Thankfully I only have a couple more weeks on it, then on to the X79 platform.

E Sata is till better than USB 3.0 for hard drives. There was some benchmarks a while back here and on various tech blogs. Apparently because there is no overhead and such like there is with USB. Over long sustained writes E Sata took the advantage.

Also now there is E Sata III which is faster than USB 3.0 there are already boards out there with the updated E Sata revision. You also get to keep hard drive features like NCQ and such over E Sata as well as usage of RAID through Rapid Storage instead of the usual software raid applications like that of WD's "hard drive control" application for their RAID drives.

i still have an IDE DVD drive and E-Sata HDD mad.gif
post #16 of 46
For CD/DVD burners, IDE works just fine and there's no advantage to using SATA. I sometimes use all 4 of my drives at the same time (2 in SATA and 2 on IDE) and more than half the time, the IDE drives finish first. Unless it's bluray, opticals will not be bottlenecked by IDE and I'm glad for the 2 extra ports that IDE offers. I wouldn't mind IDE being gone if every board had two extra sata ports to compensate for it. PS/2 shouldn't be gotten rid of any time soon for one very important reason. USB is NOT better than ps/2 in ANY way. USB is just more convenient but ps/2 is more reliable and reacts much faster than usb as well as offers more simultaneous keystrokes for keyboards. I don't see ps/2 being obsolete until they make something that's actually better. As much as I'd like esata speeds, there just aren't many e-sata hdd's out there and even if there was, it'd be more expensive than usb 3.0 hdd's so I'd be fine with getting rid of all the e-sata. I don't know of anyone who uses them anyway.

I don't think I need more USB ports. 18 USB ports, 4 of those are USB 3.0. tongue.gif Only 6 of them all are used. But that is a cool product nonetheless. smile.gif
post #19 of 46

I need a card that has usb 3.0 AND sata III in a good implementation: full speed and no compatibility problems.

I will wait untill I buy a SDD.

E-Sata III you say....? Hm. I shall look into it. Thank you for the input, I was not aware of it.
