PC World: "To prevent slowdowns as hard drive transfer rates climb, Maxtor unveils Tuesday
its new Ultra Advanced Technology Attachment/133 standard.
The new standard, dubbed "Fast Drives," builds upon the existing Ultra ATA/100, but offers transfer rates at
133MBps. That's a 33 percent increase, says Simon Broadbent, technical marketing manager at Maxtor.
Best of all, the new standard should represent a relatively painless move, as it is completely backward compatible
with the existing ATA/66 and ATA/100 standards, he says. You can even use the same cable."
