Sata 6gb E1

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a sata 3 (6gbs) hard drive, and two sata 3 SSDs in my system. My motherboard has 2 sata 3s, and 1 sata 3 E1, plus the ususal sata 2s. Will me HDD get better speeds using 6gb E1 or just the old sata 2, cause I have heard E1s are slow.....


Thanks!

The speed of the buss that you connect your HDD/SSD to has nothing to do with how fast it will run.
Unless the drive can saturate the buss with data, but there are virtually No drives that can saturate even a SATA II (3gb/sec) buss. Those are buss speeds, not drive speeds.\
You can bench your drives to see how fast they are actually performing. You won't see a difference between SATAII and SATA III.
