Any native/non native issue with SATA2 ports in my old intel motherboard?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I saw post mentioned SSD has to plug into the "native" SATA 3 port in order to have the best performance while not every SATA 3 port on the motherboard is native. I am not sure what is the different between native and non native.

So my mohterboard is a pretty old one Intel DG41TY, it only has SATA2. Here is the manual:

I read the manual and look like no different between each sata2 port. So any native SATA port issue?

Native Sata 3 means the sata 3 port is ran by the chipset and not a add in chip. Like Z77 boards have i think 6 native sata and then 4 more add in ports. The add in ports arn't as reliable and sometimes slower then the native chipset ports.

I see, so for my old SATA2 board, don't have issue like this and I can just use any sata2 port on board right?

Yes, any of the four SATA ports will work.
The SSD will be backward compatible with the SATA 3.0 Gb/s speeds.
It will just not run as fast as on a board with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports.

To be concise, the sequential performance will be bottlenecked by SATA 3Gb/s but the more important random performance should be unaffected.
