Difference between SATA 2 and 3 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
True that you would be limited by SATA 3 bandwidth, but that may still be the best bang for the buck, but then again I'm not familiar with PCI-E SSD prices.

Also lol at your sig. I used to enjoy writhing things in hex/binary just for the *** is that factor people would give. This was my favorite if someone asked me what it said:

Does pose an interesting quandry, myself (soon) and many others on OCN are using RAID-0 on 2x 6gb/s SSD's, which could potentially exceed SATA3 bandwidth, although 500MB/s advertised read is far exaggerated by most manufacturers as you know. But in the near future when drive controllers are more optimised, we're going to be bottlenecked all over again.

Hmm...isn't the speed rating per port--not of the whole interface? So until we get SSD's that have sustained transfer speeds of ~750MB each, I think we're okay. smile.gif
