SATA 3.0 to offer 6 Gbps transfer speed

The solid-state disk drive is supposed to be fast, while the Serial ATA (SATA) transfer interface is the bottleneck. Now, the SATA-IO organization is preparing to eliminate this logjam, with the publication of SATA 3.0 specification.

The solid-state disk drive is supposed to be fast, while the Serial ATA (SATA) transfer interface is the bottleneck. Now, the SATA-IO organization is preparing to eliminate this logjam, with the publication of SATA 3.0 specification. Its goal is to accelerate maximum transfer speeds to 6 Gbps, and in so doing, widen the bandwidth between components where these new bottlenecks have recently been introduced, states a recent SATA-IO white paper.
