Serial ATA Installation Fact Sheet 3.3.3

QuestionAnswer
What does SATA mean? Serial AT attachment
What is the latest generation of standards for hard disk and other storage devices? Serial ATA(SATA)
What was the the data transfer rate for SATA I? 1.5 Gbps (150 MBps)
Which SATA standards were for 1.5 Gbps (150 MBps) data transfer. SATA I
What are two other names for SATA 3Gbps? SATA II and SATA-IO
What speeds can the second generation of SATA devices support? 3 Gbps (300 MBps)
While often referred to as SATA II, what is the correct designation? SATA-IO
What is the term for Xbox360 hard disk interface? xSATA
Xbox360 hard disk interface (called xSATA) is an included enhancement in which version of SATA? SATA-IO
Hot plug support, allowing drives to be added and removed while the system is running is an included enhancement in which version of SATA? SATA-IO
Improved connectors to reduce ESD, improved usability, and extend life when used with external devices is an included enhancement in which version of SATA? SATA-IO
What does NCQ mean? Native Command Queuing
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) for increased performance is an included enhancement in which version of SATA? SATA-IO
Port multiplier support, allowing multiple devices to be connected to a single SATA port is an included enhancement in which version of SATA? SATA-IO
What speeds can the third generation of SATA devices support? 6 Gbps (600 MBps)
What is the term for third generation of SATA devices? SATA 6 Gbps
The third generation of SATA devices support up to 6 Gbps.(600 MBps) This standard mainly addresses which devices with a SATA? Solid state drives
What does SSD mean? Solid state drive
True or false, hard drives are not capable of sending data at SATA 6 Gbps? (600Mbps) True
Which standard includes new connectors for solid state devices and thin optical drives? SATA 6 Gbps
What does eSATA mean? External Serial AT Attachment
Which standards are a subset of other standards specifically for externally connected devices? eSATA
Which standard uses a special SATA data cable with a locking clip to prevent the cable from being accidentally disconnected? eSATA
Which standard requires an external power connector or power source? eSATA
Why do eSATA devices require an external power connector or power source? Because power is not supplied through the SATA data cable
eSATA is typically faster than which two other alternatives for external storage devices? USB and Firewire
Which standard has its own channel, with a single drive connected to each cable and port? SATA
Which standard can the cable length be up to one meter? SATA
Which standard can the cable length be up to two meters? eSATA
Which standard devices use a special 15-pin power connector that supplies 3.3, 5, and 12 volts SATA
SATA devices use a special 15-pin power connector. What voltages are supplied? 3.3, 5, and 12
You can use an adapter cable to convert a 4-pin Molex connector to a SATA power connector. What would you lose by doing this? 3.3 volts
With this standard most devices typically do not use 3.3 volts. What is the standard? SATA
What type of devices can you connect using the SATA standard? Hard drives, Optical drives (CD/DVD/Blu-ray) and Solid state drives (SSD)
All new motherboards include support for multiple devices. What is the standard? SATA
True or false, some motherboards include eSATA connectors, or you can use a port connector device to add external ports using the internal SATA connections? True
True or false, you can install an adapter card in an available bus slot to increase the number of SATA ports? True
After installing the SATA drives, where will you need to configure the SATA mode? In the BIOS
What are the possible options in BIOS for configuring SATA mode? IDE, AHCI, and RAID
Which mode do SATA devices appear to the BIOS and the operating system as IDE devices? IDE-compatible mode
Which mode are SATA Speeds and features limited to features available with IDE devices. For example, hot swapping is not supported for devices in IDE mode IDE-compatible mode
Which mode did earlier operating systems without built-in SATA support have the capability to directly access IDE-mode drives without special drivers installed? IDE-compatible mode
Which mode is the default mode for most computers? IDE
What does AHCI mean? Advanced Host Controller Interface
Which mode can devices operate in full SATA mode? AHCI
Which mode are all SATA features available such as hot swapping and native command queuing? AHCI
Which mode did earlier operating systems (Windows XP SP1 and earlier) require a driver to access devices operating in this mode? AHCI
True or false, recent operating systems include a built-in driver for AHCI mode? True
Which mode has an onboard controller that is used to control access to drives? RAID
Which mode must have the controller driver loaded in the operating system to access the drives? RAID
Which mode typically includes the features available in AHCI mode? RAID
Which mode would you choose to configure arrays of disks for fault tolerance and/or performance? RAID
When installing a newer SATA II drive into a system that only supports SATA I, you might need to Configure the drive to operate in SATA I mode. How is this typically done? Setting a jumper
When installing a newer SATA II drive into a system that only supports SATA I, you might need to update to recognize the new drive? The BIOS
Some SATA II drives will not work in a motherboard that supports only SATA I. In that case, what should you install? SATA II controller card
