Also seems pretty silly to put it on a regular SATA connection, when all that can manage is 150MB/sec. If you made it connection directly to 66/64-bit PCI then it could actualy _use_ the speed of the RAM, not to mention PCI-X.Alex Turner NetEconomist
Well, the whole point is to have it look like a normal SATA drive, even to the point that you can boot off of it, without having to load a single driver.
Now, you could offer that you could recreate a SATA controller on the card, with a SATA bios, etc. And then you could get the increased speed, and still have bootable functionality.
But it is a version 1.0 of a product, and I'm sure they tried to make it as cheap as possible (and within their own capabilities.)
