An announcement from ACARD Technology earlier today has it that they've just released the supposed world's first 3GB/sec SATA to IDE Bridge Chip (ARC-772).

Get the full rundown on it here folks.


"ACARD's ARC-772 is at the forefront of SATA-to-PATA technology and we are proud of having the ability to help companies speed up the IDE interface" said Daniel Weng, the CEO at ACARD. In fact, the ARC-772 supports maximum transfer rate of 200MB/s in Ultra DMA host mode (PATA) and 3.0Gb/s in Serial ATA mode. With such a high rate, the ARC-772 can definitely provide excellent range of applications. Furthermore, it helps the proprietary systems convert host interface to SATA or works with a SATA tray to perform hot-swap function with the PATA hard drive.
