- Serial ATA gets speed boost

A story went out over the Business Wire today mentioning that the Serial ATA Working Group has announced second generation Serial ATA specifications. The first change is a double in bandwidth increasing transfers to 300MB/s and new connectors.

 

The specification for the second generation Serial ATA signaling speed - 3Gbps - has been completed and the release candidate of that specification has started its ratification process. The second-generation speed of 3Gbps (300MB/s) is double that of the first-generation Serial ATA speed which is 1.5Gbps (150MB/s).

 


- nForce3 250 Chipset Overclocking

There is no doubt in our minds that the AMD Athlon 64 will take a great leap forward in overclocking circles with the launch of the nForce3 250 chipset. At last, now that the PCI bus can be controlled, the full potential of the processor can be achieved.
