 RapIDE32 Features include:

The software drives automatically setup the hardware access speed according to the information provided by each IDE device. If you have a fast Hard Drive and a slow CD-ROM, the Hard Drive does not have to work at the lower speed. Compare this with the RISC PC motherboard IDE controller that always uses the slowest access speed.

Data from the IDE device is transferred in 32-bit words, twice as wide as the motherboard controller. Not only does this double the transfer rate, but the software involved to convert the native 32-bit data to 16-bit is eliminated. The use of 32-bit access achieves over a 100% performance improvement.
