Does this mean that I wont get the full performance out of the ssd? More about : asusp7p55d mobo Dereck47 a c 545 G Storage January 6, 2013 3:00:07 AM 3Gb/s is SATA 2. 6Gb/s is SATA 3. You won't get maximum advertised Read/Write speeds from a SATA 3 SSD with your motherboard but it's definitely still worth buying if you are upgrading from a HDD. m 0 l Tomchew January 6, 2013 4:03:15 AM So you think I'll still see a major difference in speed even without sata3? I don't really want to purchase a new mobo lol. m 0 l Related resources Will these components work with this MoBo - Forum Not Sure if MOBO will fit in case - Forum RAM compatibility with Mobo - Forum Good mostly black Mobo for a I5 4690k and GTX 980 - Forum Which mobo to choose?
