I recently went to IBM's website in search of a hard disk and found this model:
http://www.storage.ibm.com/hardsoft/diskdrdl/desk/ds75gxp.htm#ProdSpecs

In the specs, it stated that the interface the drive used was 'ATA-100'.
Is there really such thing as ATA-100? If so, when will motherboards support this new standard?

Yes, indeed there's ATA-100 standard, which as the std implies, it will have a peak transfer rate of 100MB/s rather then the current ATA-66 or UDMA66 drive at 66MB/s.

Currently there's no official report from any major motherboard manufaturer use ATA-100 spec. But ABIT, a motherboard manufacturer has announced that they will release a ATA-100 IDE controller. www.abit-usa.com
