I remember looking into it maybe 3 years ago and figuring it would do little for me, but I can't recall the details.
If an HD supports NCQ, is AHCI necessary to take advantage of it??
I have no need for RAID or hot swapping.
I completely forgot about it when I did my recent Win 7 install, so I still am without.
Any insight into the real-world difference for typical users, non-RAID?
Speed related? Security related? Minor? Very minor? Moderate?
