4K-sector drives and Linux
Posted Mar 15, 2010 10:16 UTC (Mon) by firstname.lastname@example.org (guest, #38022)
But only for disks with 4096 bytes per LOGICAL sector and 4096 bytes per PHYSICAL sector; you can't find those drives on the market.
There is only 512 bytes per LOGICAL sector and 4096 bytes per PHYSICAL sector for sale, those are 100% compatible with current 512 bytes per sector drive, just are slower in some cases (so they have the same limits).
