Is it plugged into a 6Gb/s port?

my alienware m17x r2 has only 2 harddrive ports

how can i tell if one is 6gb/s or not?

Looks like that laptop only has SATA 3GB, so that's the best speed you'll get. Sequential speed doesn't really matter that much though, the SSD will still make the system seem crazy fast because of the random speed and access time.

oh thanks for the response

i am wondering, around how much difference is 6gb vs 3gb

is it actaully twice the speed?

Well I did some research on your laptop and it only supports speeds up to SATA II (although SATA III drives still work). So unfortunately there's nothing you can do. Sorry :/

Only in sequential speeds. It really doesn't make that much difference in the perceived speed though, since the random performance of the SSD is so good. The only time you'd notice the dequential speed would be copying a large file to another SSD - otherwise the time difference is no big deal.

Theoretically, yes.

A single drive won't saturate it though.

In benchmarks, yeah there's some significant gains from SATA II to SATA III. But from my experiences, it's pretty hard to notice a difference in real world scenarios (like booting up your computer or loading applications). There's probably only a few seconds difference. The real difference is the switch from mechanical drives to SSDs. You can definitely tell the difference between those.

How many times did I say difference in this post? Hahaha
