    I'd wait for Serial ATA II as Serial ATA is still restricted by the PCI bus and won't show any real performance gains till it is removed from it. ;)

    Any ideas on when PCIexpress is showing up?
    and what is the deal here?
    is PCIexpress and hypertransport 2 competeing standards?
    and whats fastest?
    already seen hypertransport in some specs, doesnt Nforce2 use it between north and south bridge at 1600mb/sec?
    alot faster than pci 133mb/sec

    is PCI express intel, and hypertransport AMD?

    btw i sense 2 abreviations crashing into eachother hehe
    HyperTransport and HyperTreading..

    the drive is capable of that, but can it deliver with the pci buss caping it at 133mb/sec

    Just read some sweet info on PCI-x

    "PCI-SIG has begun initial work to develop specifications for PCI-X 1066, the successor to the recent PCI-X 266 and PCI-X 533 specifications. The newest standard will allow PC components to exchange data at bandwidths of up to 8.5 gigabytes per second, compared with less than 1 gigabyte per second for current versions."
