That's just the interface. The drive internals are up to the drive maker.
I'd say the only reason you don't see 14k drives are that the drive makers
say "Hmm. IDE over SCSI costs £100 - we can make 14k 30GB SCSI drives for
£1000, and 14k IDE 30GB drives for £900. And who would spend £900 on an
IDE drive, when they could got the extra bit for SCSI".
