Which storage drive technology uses point-to-point serial links to make its connections, and does not require any special ribbon cable wiring configurations?
The answer: B) SATA
Serial ATA provides many advantages, and it’s often a surprise that this format of sending data serially down a cable allows for greater throughputs than the older Parallel ATA (PATA) drive connections. SATA provides high throughput, thinner cables, and a point-to-point cabling system that makes configurations much easier.
