Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel talks SATA and Flash - Intel talks SATA and Flash
Mon, April 16 2007 | 1:59PM | PermaLink Feedback?
While the SATA 3.0 update is expected to be set in cement in about two weeks (in case you missed it), Intel reminded us that the Serial ATA 2.6 update was published last month. SATA 2.6's white paper has an outline for a whole new slimline connector for 1.8” hard drives. This is designed to reduce the space used in a notebook or UMPC as it allows the drives to mount lower power and fewer pinned SATA plugs on the drives' shorter edge. Currently the SATA connector is a bit too big to fit on 1.8” disk drive and when the original specification was put through, they didn’t expect SATA to be adopted into these components.
