Tell me the Advantages of SATA over PATA.

The main reason or the main purpose to develop SATA was to get more transfer rate. So if you compare PATA, PATA is capable of data transfers speeds of 66 or 100 or 133 MBs/sec.  On the other hand SATA has the power to transfer at a speed of 150 or 300 or 600 MBs/sec, that's a huge difference.

The lowest powered SATA has the ability to transfer more than the fastest of PATA. One thing I know is that it is really a big discovery for the game lover. For smooth playing, it must need to transfer more data at the same time.

If you’re using PATA, you have to be mindful of master and slave configuration of your hard drives.  Jumpers have to be set right. If you use SATA, you don’t need to worry about this.

PATA can achieve a maximum transfer speed of about 133Megabytes per second with its latest revision.  SATA on the other hard can achieve up to about 500Megabytes per second with its latest revision, SATA 3.0. SATA cables are fewer and are less prone to breakage than the PATA or IDE cable which is composed of several wires more than the SATA cable. Both devices are not interchangeable and must have motherboard support to work.

Hello,

The advantages and disadvantages between the two. The PATA is parallel ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment) it can still most requirements and based of the 16 bit of parallel interface it can normally be used to control the hard drive but the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) is a serial ATA.

The performance of the SATA is considerably 7200 rpm in the hard drive, then a single bit of the serial in parallel ATA. The connection in the hard drive on ATA is used to ribbon cable with the 40 wires and the other side the SATA cables just only 7 wires because the SATA is easier to manage from the ATA hard drive.

Hi these are the answers for your question.

1.First and the vital reason why SATA is used over PATA is because of the escalated data transfer rate with SATA. Data transfer speed of PATA is 66/100/133 MBs/Second, whereas SATA is transfer rate is 150/300/600 MBs/Second. Because of the ascended speed rate SATA helps to load files extremely fast.

2.Second point is Cable length & management. Maximum length of PATA cable is 18 inches, whilst SATA cable can be up to 1 meter.

3.Third point is increased airflow. SATA is small in size than PATA. It allows escalated airflow into the computer cases and helps to decrease the heat build up.

4.Final point is supporting to more devices. SATA cable contains 4 connections on motherboard, whilst PATA have 2 connections only available in the main board.

I hope you will get clear idea in this chapter.

Thank you.
