With the advent of Intel's 9xx chipsets that natively support tagged command queuing (TCQ) over SATA, much noise has been made about the boost in performance that TCQ supposedly offers. Many people have been looking forward to TCQ for an extra performance boost on their system.

However, things are not all they seem. Storage Review looks closely into TCQ in a RAID environment, using both SCSI and SATA. The conclusions they draw are perhaps surprising to those who have not had the oppertunity to work with storage technology. Rather than spoil their surprise, lets just say that at the lower end of the RAID market, SATA and SCSI are very close in performance. As for that TCQ - you'll have to read the article!
