If backward compatible , why not all sata/usb 3.0 ports? More about : sata alextheawesome July 10, 2010 6:26:10 AM Not enough bandwith(?) (or the chipsets aren't that good enough yet, whatever). Like how sometimes when you use two graphics cards instead of one they operate at 8x 8x instead of 16x 16x. raclimja July 10, 2010 6:31:57 AM because most chipset(intel) doesn't support SATA 6/USB 3 natively on the chipset so vendors are rely on third party and that limits the bandwidth so you only see 2 ports of usb 3 and sata 6 Can't find your answer ?
