Perhaps I am just very unlike the typical user but why on earth have

On any mobo that can support SATA/300 one would think the bus/cpu could
keep pace so wheres the issue?

As to the comment about single disk (home machines I gather from your
tone) not taxing UDMA100 much less SATAx I defently tax mine and most of
it is near real time requirements so low latency does matter,
