Seagate Unveils SATA3

Yesterday, Seagate unveiled the new SATA3 hard drive interface technology, which should offer transfer speeds of up to 6 Gb per second, about twice as fast as what SATA2 can currently achieve.

The new technology will be retro-compatible with SATA and SATA2 interfaces and should be released before the end of the year. Unfortunately, SATA3 isn’t a standard yet and is only supported by AMD, which should change quickly enough if the new drive interface is a fast as announced. AMD plans to fully support the technology on all its future chipsets.
