When connected to a SATA II port, it will only get up to 280/260 Read/Write. When connected to a SATA III port, it gets up to 530/450.Originally Posted by black!ce;13138013
the SATA 3 is not only the new feature in the vertex 3, it has almost double of the sequential read and write speeds compared to the vertex 2 plus its future proof
that why i said its future proof as wellOriginally Posted by TwoCables;13138065

So it's a waste of money until it can be connected to a SATA III port.
The Vertex 3 are also better at handling uncompressible data for random writes/reads. You do not need SATA 6Gb/s for those benefits.Originally Posted by TwoCables;13137839
It's backwards compatible, but it could be a waste of money unless you know you'll have a board with SATA III soon.
