Maxtor to add 300MB/s SATA support to drives
Maxtor will be adding support for 300MB/s Serial ATA transfer rates to its DiamondMax 10 and MaXLine III drives. Support for the faster host transfer rate will bring Maxtor in-line with Hitachi, Seagate, and Western Digital, which all have 300MB/s drives on the market. Apart from the addition of 300MB/s host transfer rates, the DiamondMax 10 and MaXLine III appear to be unchanged. The updated drives are expected to hit the market by the end of the year.
