Gene & Everybody,
There is no need for same run wafers. The capacitance is measured
at the connector.
You only need to have same model drives to have a problem, and
that is often the case. Whenever you put 15 drives on a system
you would buy 15 of the same model? Or, would you buy 15 drives
|from 15 different manufactures?
On Paul's issue on the capacitance:
I think there isn't enough margin now to give up any unless we do
something else to get some margin back.
