Maxtor announces MaxLine III and DiamondMax Serial ATA II hard drives

Posted on Tuesday, October 11 2005 @ 09:12:19 CEST by


Maxtor introduced the 3Gb/s Serial ATA interface on its Maxtor MaXLine III (enterprise ATA applications) and DiamondMax 10 (desktop) hard drives. The 7,200 RPM drives will begin shipping this quarter and include capacity points up to 300GB, up to a 16MB buffer and a comprehensive set of SATA II features including native command queuing (NCQ), staggered spin up, hot-plug capability and asynchronous signal recovery.

The new 3Gb/s SATA interface doubles the maximum data transfer speed of the original industry-standard 1.5Gb/s SATA interface. The performance benefit of the 3Gb/s SATA interface speed can especially be seen by system builders and integrators in multi-drive environments, where bandwidth is aggregated.

The hard drive industry is continuing its transition from the traditional parallel ATA to the SATA interface. According to IDC, 65 percent of the worldwide desktop PC market will feature the SATA interface by the end of this year. Many PC and storage subsystem manufacturers are expected to deploy 3.0Gb/s SATA products in 2006 to take advantage of the increased interface speed and a richer feature set. Maxtor's introduction of 3.0Gb/s SATA into its award-winning product portfolio positions it to support industry needs for the new interface across multiple markets.

Maxtor hard drives with the SATA 3Gb/s interface will also be available in retail later this year.
