Short answer: No, probably not.
A 6GB/s interface would allow you to do burst transfers from/to the drive's internal cache more efficiently, and may provide a small benefit on certain workloads.
Thanks JBI - I'm curious, "certain workloads" - does that include video editing? Specifically - for Premiere Pro or Final Cut cache / preview files? Or the disc I write to in the final render?
I guess not; the way I understand video editing it's mostly about sustained transfers and rarely (if ever) about burst activity. Is that right?
btw I think I'll move the Blu-Ray burner and put this new disc on the SATA 6Gb/s port...see what happens. I think
(i hope) I've rid myself of the Marvell drivers problem once and for all...
thanks again all!
