Slowing down? Tags: SSD Hard Drives Storage Last response: June 20, 2012 9:20 PM in Storage Share replayed June 20, 2012 9:02:43 PM If I have a sata600 ssd, a normal sata300 hdd, and a sata bluray drive on 1 sata600 controller will the speed go down because of the slower hardware???

There used to be much more. (At least in my area this appears to be so) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Dereck47 a c 395 G Storage June 20, 2012 9:20:07 PM No, your speeds will not slow down. AM3+ motherboards have only one controller (AMD), but the 6 SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports operate independently. So your SSD, HDD & Blu-ray will operate at advertised speeds. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
