No PATA in Intel's Next Chipset - Page 2

post #11 of 14
That SATA one is very pricy, I was just looking at it on Newegg and it was about $150 and my LG DL DVD burner is only $38 right now! All you get for the extra dough is the 8MB of cache (vs. 2MB on my LG) and SATA but if its the only choice, thats a good excuse to cut the clutter in my case LOL.

SATA seems like a waste on a DVD drive. The physical disc can't read fast enough to take advantage of SATA. On the otherhand, if you can make all drives SATA, why not. IDE cables are ugly anyway.

I think this is a dumb move until the SATA drives are more developed since there's a bottleneck between reading the disk and the speed that SATA can transfer. There's really no reason to remove the one PATA connection.
The only logical idea I can see about this is that I'm sure all the Blu-Ray and HD-DVD drives are going to be SATA and since there's such an increase in storage capacity the drives much read faster so maybe that will eliminate the bottleneck and performance downfalls?

A move to cause the need to spend money on upgrading!
I believe there is another mfg making SATA CD/DVD drives ... MSI for one.
