    How old is SATA. Did the older Intel M/Bs (intel 810,815, 845 ) contain a SATA port ?

    What are the data transfer rates for conventional IDE & SATA ports respectively ?

    I mean to say If I use a single hard disk of :

    (i) Type- IDE, capacity X GB, at Y RPM from Z manufacturer (Without IDE RAID)

    &

    (ii) Type-SATA, capacity X GB, at Y RPM from Z manufacturer (Without SATA RAID)

    then which one will give me better performance ?

    SATA is a new tecnology(about two years old) and the first chipset to include it (native support) was the i865 and i875. The tr rate of sata presently is 150Mbps and the proposed sata 2 is 300Mbps. The fastest pata ie IDE is 133Mbps. Please note all these are the theoratical maximum figures the real figs are way off. I use a seagate 7200rpm 8mb buffer 160gb sata disk on a asus p4p800 mobo and get a throughput of 83Mbps only but sata is faster than pata ie ide, and yes the sata connector is down right ..... sexy.

    Would you name the motherboard/(Base chipset) that includes SATA-2 (Trnsfr rate 300 mbps ; let it be theoritically)

    off to "never ever" land
    sata 2 is not out yet
    its still "theoretical"
    no mobos as of now support it ...
    the older boards. .. well not 810 and all but others had sata but they were optional
    its the newer chipsets where ppl actually ask for sata and they are available as standard
