SATA-IO Announced Two New SATA Standards

SATA-IO announced the development of a new standard that combines SATA software infrastructure with the PCI Express interface and the new technology will allow manufacturers to create devices that can tap into the bandwidth of PCIe slots while remaining compatible with existing SATA applications. The amalgamation will offer an affordable way to provide devices with interface speeds of 8Gb/s and 16Gb/s, a healthy increase over SATA 3.0's single-channel throughput of 6Gb/s. SATA Express devices are recognized by the host as plain old SATA hardware it's also more scalable than traditional SATA because SATA-IO can simply tap into more PCIe lanes to boost speed and satisfy higher performance requirements when the time comes.................
