Yes Ian is correct in this matter. Remember that most ATA sub-systems can only write so much data per second, they can usually read much faster then they can write. However you can also speed things up using either SCSI or IDE RAID controllers. Promise makes a really nice one in their FastTrak series for ATA/IDE hard drives, preferrably 7200 RPM drives or you can go all out and get their expensive RAID 5 controller. Also note that Adaptec makes the best SCSI RAID cards and there is no shortage of very fast SCSI hard drives, like the Seagate 15K Barracuda series

These are what the big rendering outfits use, just very large uber arrays
