Solved asusp7p55d mobo Tags: SSD Performance Storage Last response: January 6, 2013 4:51 AM in Storage Share Tomchew January 6, 2013 2:55:03 AM I wanted to buy a SSD but one of my friends said something about my mobo not having a sata3, not sure what that is my mobo specs say sata3gb/s. Does this mean that I wont get the full performance out of the ssd?

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. | Report abuse Reply to Dereck47 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. | Report abuse Reply to Tomchew Best solution Dereck47 Storage Expert January 6, 2013 4:09:45 AM Yes, you'll notice the difference and won't ever want to use a HDD as a O/S drive again. | Report abuse Reply to Dereck47 Related ressources How to test a processor - Forum I7 build for ~$2,500 - Forum Cpu's - Forum 1st PC Build - Question? - Forum Best SSD Of 2013, Which is it? - Forum Ask the community Publish Tomchew January 6, 2013 4:39:26 AM Well alrighty then I was thinking of getting the Samsung 840 or the kingston hyperX any suggestions on which is better?
