This article discusses the performance differences in SCSI vs SATA, and tells you how those differences translate to performance in real world
As with any analysis, we must first look at the benchmarks. As you may know, the biggest difference between SCSI and SATA is that while SCSI has a
processor integrated into the controller, SATA makes greater use of the system processor to serve that function. Therefore, the first step we will
take in our analysis is to take a close look at how big the controller and rest of the computer plays in the performance of the drives. Will a higher
end SCSI controller greatly increase the performance of a SCSI drive, and will a faster system processor help an SATA drive?
