  1. The 970 with 9xx southbridge adds native SATA6Gb. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_chipsets
  2. i know this is an old thread, but the only reply is wrong and there is no accepted solution

    870 and 970 are identical, just like how the 850 and 950 southbridges are identical

    they both support sata 6 gbps

    i believe the only difference between 8 and 9 series northbridges is hypertransport. 9 series has HT3.1 and 8 series uses HT3
