  1. That's what it means. SATA drives will run at the fastest speed supported by both the drive and the port you plug it into.

    Thanks to an International standard a new SATA 3 6Gb/s ssd will work on an older motherboard that only has a SATA 2 3Gb/s capabilities. However, the rate at which data is trasmitted between the ssd and the motherboard will be reduced. A typical user probably won't notice difference.
