First SATA drives for laptops go on sale

  1. Aug 26, 2004 #1
    I just noticed that Fujitsu is now shipping SATA interface laptop hard drives. These are dual-interface, so they should also be compatible with current IDE interfaces. If I understand correctly, SATA interfaces for laptops will become available with the upcoming mobile chipset update, Alviso, from Intel that will work with the current Dothan CPUs and give them a front-side bus boost from the current 400MHz to 533MHz.

    Alviso may also bring PCI-Express to laptops.
