Why is my SSD Sata 3 showing up as Sata 2 in Windows??

I just bought a Verbatim Sata III (says on the box and also BIOS confirmed sata III. made sure to plug into Sata III port on Gigabyte Z68 mobo. However in windows it shows as Sata II SCSI and when I run AS-SSD it shows the same with really slow speeds like 180 read/write.

What's going on??
