serial ATA drop-in cards

i know there not in the market yet and i don't know if they ever will be. but that would be a nice feature for those like myself that don't plan on upgradeing the motherboards untill first quarter of 2003.

it would also be handy for those who get the non-raid board and just add serial ATA raid card to one of the free pci slots.

any idea if it would be possible in the next month or three?

Hopefully fast...hopefully it's not like the speed differences between 66/100/133.

You can already buy a HighPoint SerialATA RAID card. It sells for about $120, but you really don't want it. It just uses some ICs to adapt ATA133 to SerialATA. That means you only get 133M/s bandwidth(instead of 150), and it also means higher latency which cuts effective bandwidth further.

Until they speed up the RPM's or decrease the seek time, no increase in transfer rate will really help. Hard drives can really only put out about 50mb/s at 7200RPM.

It shouldn't add more than $5 to the cost.
