S.A.T.A 3

Post by birdy_356 » Thu Jun 12, 2008 22:21

:shock: Hallo mensen,
omdat ik over moeilijkheden bij de installatie van WinXP op een "Samsung Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ S.A.T.A.3 met 1000GB"(1 Terabyte) gehoord heb, vraag ik me af of zo'n harddisk onder linux(sabayon)herkend wordt :?:
iemand al geprobeerd :roll:

SATA of any version if it is in the kernel , it is supported + most hardware out there does not yet support SATA 3 so will fall back to SATA 2.
It will only run as fast as the slowest part of the hd to ?? connection.

SATA3 should only be usefull in 1 or 2 years effectively once most hardware is at SATA3 level / compatible.

As for disk space yes 1000gb or more will be readable as 1 big ext3 or multi partition hd.

SATA3 (SATA 6GB) is optimised for using SSD hardware. I use it in my notebook.
Maybe a combination of one SSD for boot and system and a second one for data is a good idea?
Anyway, ext3 needs a lot more time to access small files than XFS does.
You can check your build in controll chips support SATA2 or SATA3 with small programs like hwinfo or lshw.
It may be necessary to install those tools.
