Just because a marketing teams makes up a term, does not make it real. Common sense derives from logic. Using the official defined specification would be logical. Moving outside of these bounds without relatively good justification would be irrational. Marketing trying to sell uninformed consumers would not constitute good justification.1

The committee that defines SATA says do NOT use these terms. Hence, these terms are not valid to describe the technology set forth by the ones who developed it. The reasons for naming is obvious... it to not confuse the protocol. When you hear someone say "SATA 3"... do they mean "SATA Third generation" or "SATA 3Gb/s"?

Hmm, so how about talking about the drive rather then having a flame war over what to call SATA 6Gb/s?

This drive looks sick, even running on a 3rd party controller it is still going to be a beast!

If you go to newegg they group the 6GB/s SSDs under the "SATA III" interface when you search the SSD's.. just to throw another log on the fire..

I know it must mean something...like I can enable my Marvell controller once I get a 6GB/s SSD.. sadly I do not think there is a reason to even enable the controller until you have a SATA 6GB/s SSD, my WD1002FAEX runs and benchmarks faster on the ICH10 controller, and it's supposed to be a 6 Gb/s drive. I actually boot faster because I am not stalled by waiting for the Marvell controller to enable. These little annoyances, and reading Sin0822's Gigabyte reviews are selling me on a switch to a Gigabyte for my next mobo. (I got the ASUS P6X58D Premium right when it came out)

I guess that's what I get for taking a risk, rushing out and getting shiny new tech before the afterbirth is even wiped off..

What about the SATA 6Gb/s controller on AMD 800 series SBs?

I thought the SandForce 1200 was better than Marvel's equivalent controller...

Its probably built in RAID0... after all Super Talent has USB drives hitting 300+ mb/s

I think his point just was that SATA 6Gb/s exists.

I was about to hit "BUY" for the Crucial C300, but this thread stopped me.
