SATA Drives From BenQ In Second Half Of 2005?

Postby Ian on Mon Mar 07, 2005 9:39 pm

BenQ debuted a number of SATA DVD writers at Computex almost a year ago. For whatever reason, they never shipped. Reading over their CeBIT press release, I was a little surprised to see this:

In addition, beginning from the second half of 2005, BenQ and PBDS will offer the full line optical storage devices with Serial ATA interface from half-height DVDROM, DVD combo, DVDRW, Blu-ray to Slimline products, in order to provide consumers a total solution for speed upgrading and interface transition.

The way it sounds they're actually expanding the number of SATA products. Hopefully we'll see more non-Intel chipsets that can support them.
