 Hard Drive ATA100 vs. ATA133

Tweakers compares ATA100 and ATA133.

"ATA133 suggests that a capable hard drive can theoretically push 133MB/s in burst mode, much like how memory bandwidth is talked about. This figure is somewhat artificial, and real-world performance is what counts in the end, which is precisely what the following pages are about. We go over a brief but direct comparison between ATA100 and ATA133 (Ultra DMA modes 5 and 6) with one of the original ATA133 drives - the Maxtor D740X-6L."
