Abit's new UDMA 100 card

— 2:03 AM on February 22, 2000

The motherboard moguls at Abit are at it again, announcing the first UDMA 100 card I've seen so far. Yes, that's 100 megabytes per second peak transfer rates with this card and UDMA 100 hard drives.

Like ATA/66, UDMA 100 will require new cables, but the connectors are the same:

With the Ultra ATA/66 specification not only is your ATA/66 compatible drive running faster but it is also running more safely. The specification calls for a new 80-wire cable (that still uses the 40 pin connector, insuring compatibility with your existing IDE connectors) that decreases a lot of the electronic noise that can cause data errors thus creating a cleaner, stronger signal.
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
