    Serial ATA merely changes the bus, a.k.a. the interface between drive
    and system.

    This doesn't mean that the drive itself will be any faster... most
    first-gen SATA drives are just PATA drives with a new circuit board and
    new firmware. Just like some SCSI and IDE drives are exactly the same
    platters, but have differing circuit boards and connectors...
