Serial ATA is the next generation storage interface. With the trend towards smaller footprint PCs, this thin & flexible premium cable will free much needed space within the CPU, improve airflow and reduce over-heating. Optimized for internal storage and with 150MBps transfer rate, it is faster than the current UltraIDEs speed of 133MBps. Serial ATA features Hot Plug capability, low power consumption, point-to-point connection for easy installation & configuration, and longer cables up to one meter. It will eventually support speeds up to 300MBps.
