They are still used for some components, off the top of my head the only things I could think of are water pumps and rgb/fan controllers.

They are there for legacy support (so for IDE support still) and certain 'controllers' still use this.

With controllers I mean USB-, firewire-, fan-, etc. controllers.

 

But in most PC's you will just not use it at all.
