fastest sata by mick

what is the fastest sata hard drive aria stock sata 111 / 6mbps ? if so what rpm

Response by andrewn
Probably the caviar black, qc 40242, which is 7200RPM. SATAIII / G6bps is slightly pointless for mechanical hard drives though, since none of them can maintain sequential transfer rates close to 3.0 GBps (Sata II) speeds. If you want high speeds, SSDs are the way to go.

Question  1TB Seagate ST31000528AS SATA II by Mark

Can this hard drive
1TB Seagate Barracuda ST31000528AS 3.5" SATA II Hard Drive

Be jumpered to operate at SATA 150 for legacy equipment rather than SATA 300 speed. That is can it be forced to operate at 150Mbytes per second continuously rather 300Mbytes per second.

Answer by jorged on Wednesday, March 16, 2011
It will operate at SATA 1 speed

Question  Buffer/cache? by Richard

On the main description it ays that this drive has a 32mb cache, but in the technical details it says it only has an 8mb buffer. I always thought that buffer and cache were essentially the same thing? Could you clarify this for me please?

Answer by andrewn on Tuesday, February 1, 2011
Updated, the 32MB figure is correct. Technically a buffer and a cache are actually different, but the terms are generally used interchangeably. In hard drives the memory actually serves both purposes and is correctly called a 'buffer cache'.
