Does this mean that I wont get the full performance out of the ssd? More about : asusp7p55d mobo Dereck47 a c 539 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 Suggest a good GPU and Mobo around Rs. 28000 - Forum AMD HD 7850 2GB compatible with GA-78lmt-s2p AM3+ mobo? - Forum Is mobo temperature too high at 41C? - Forum Best mobo, ram, and psu of overclocked fx8350 - Forum best "budget" Z97 mobo with 4690k - Forum Can't find your answer ?
