Hardware, Embedded Systems "The Serial ATA International Organization today, made the third-generation SATA interface official. The new interface provides a 6 Gbps high-speed serial data connection between the system and most of today's data storage devices such as hard drives, solid-state drives, optical drives, and enterprise tape drives. The interface also provides connectivity to external storage devices in its eSATA port variant. It is 100% backwards compatible with devices that support the SATA 150 MB/s and SATA II 300 MB/s standards."

You can easily saturate SATA-II port using multiplexer and 4 disks. All neatly connected to single eSATA port in motherboard. Increased bandwidth is nice.

BTW, SATA as CPU interconnect? What a mad idea is that, could you provide link?
