This is a list of interface bit rates, is a measure of information transfer rates, or digital bandwidth capacity, at which digital interfaces in a computer or network can communicate over various kinds of buses and channels. The distinction can be arbitrary between a computer bus, often closer in space, and larger telecommunications networks. Many device interfaces or protocols (e.g., SATA, USB, SAS, PCIe) are used both inside many-device boxes, such as a PC, and one-device-boxes, such as a hard drive enclosure. Accordingly, this page lists both the internal ribbon and external communications cable standards together in one sortable table

The remaining lines are in a cryptic notation that can be blamed on the ARC (RISC computer people). Let enough technicians attend enough meeting and they will produce something like this. A computer can have more than one disk controller. Some controllers may be IDE and some may be SCSI. A controller can have more than one ribbon cable (or bus). A cable can have more than one disk. A disk can have lots of partitions. Adapters, cables, disks, partitions, how many were going to Saint Ives?
The ARC standard allows an operating system to be on any partition of any disk on any bus on any controller. The first word is “multi” for IDE (or for a SCSI disk controller masquerading as IDE to the BIOS), and “scsi” for a SCSI controller that cannot be accessed through the BIOS. The string “multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)” is ARC notation for “the C: drive”.
multi(0) is the first IDE disk adapter card disk(0)rdisk(0) is the first IDE disk on that adapter card partition(1) is the first Primary Partition on that disk \WINDOWS is the directory that contains the NT operating system.
