Must be photoshopped...since we've been informed that it doesn't exist.

Don't trust marketing.


The SATA Committee explicitly tells companies not to use the term "SATA 3" because it causes confusion. i.e. Is that SATA 3.0 or a SATA 3Gb/s port?

No... that packaging is real. Gigabyte advertises there "333" motherboards.
Once again...

Must be a big conspiracy then since I've seen SATA 3 dozens of places...since we've now been told that it doesn't exist, it's hard to know where the real world ends and the conspiracy begins.

from http://www.serialata.org/developers/...guidelines.asp

" What to Call the Products: For marketing and product naming purposes, the technology itself is to be referred to as "SATA 6Gb/s." A product using this standard should be called the "SATA 6Gb/s [product name]." For an accurate description of SATA capabilities and the official guidelines to SATA product naming, please see the table below for more information.

*IMPORTANT: Do not use the terms "SATA III" or "SATA 3.0," which will cause confusion. For product naming purposes, do not use either "Third Generation" or "Gen3" in the product name. Use "SATA 6Gb/s" instead. Please note that the references embedded within the new specification to "Gen3" are technical specification naming conventions only and should not be used for marketing and product naming purposes. "

That's been posted already. Encouraging people not to call it something is different than the suggestion it doesn't exist.

I figured I would post it again since you appeared to have trouble getting it.

Yes, I'm sure Tom's Hardware photoshopped that SATA 3 in there.

So I paid extra for it intergrated into my MOBO, but it is not the fastest?? Even though it is the Marvell controller??

So I would need to buy a PCIe card with SATA 6Gb/s, and run it through that to get all you can/want.

The 3rd party SATA 6Gb/s controller will provide greater throughput (good for sequential performance). However, it adds latency and is not optimized for random performance.


It is good for a storage or game drive but not as good for an OS/application drive.

The difference is not that big but it is there.

Exactly! Finally someone with common sense.
