- newer version of IDE
- data rate 4-16.6 MBps
- up to 8GB of storage replacing SCIS
Known also as IDE, supports one or two hard drives, a 16-bit interface and PIO modes 0, 1 and 2.
Supports faster PIO modes (3 and 4) and multiword DMA modes (1 and 2). Also supports logical block addressing (LBA) and block transfers. ATA-2 is marketed as Fast ATA and Enhanced IDE (EIDE
Also called Ultra-DMA/2 , and DMA-33, supports multiword DMA mode 3 running at 33 MBps.
or Ultra-DMA/4 A new version of ATA proposed by Quantum Corporation, and supported by Intel, that will double ATA's throughput to 66 MBps. Other ATA supports speeds of 100 and 133MB/s
aka Ultra-DMA/6 currently the fastest IDE hard drive in the market
