Seagate to dump IDE

Posted on Tuesday, July 24 2007 @ 13:57:22 CEST by

Seagate allegedly briefed its partners that the end is nigh for the IDE interface. The Inq reports that by the end of this year all of Seagate's new HDD will only sport the Serial ATA interface.
Parallel ATA has had a long run but will soon follow eight inch floppy drives, 5.25-inch drives and 3.5-inch floppies on the road to nowhere. Channel sources said Seagate roadmaps show IDE is at the end of the, er, road.

So soon vast libraries of information will be stored on drives and become as incomprehensible to future generations as Etruscan is to us.

On a brighter note, it looks like there will be a heck of lot of activity on the P-ATA front until the end of the year. And where Seagate goes, the others are sure to follow. Although no doubt as IBM's successor on the hard drive front, Hitachi Data Systems will beg to differ.
