Keeping SATA Simple

Asus P7P55 WS Supercomputer P55 Motherboard Preview
Keeping SATA Simple

We've seen plenty of chatter about the possibility of 6 Gb/s SATA making it onto a number of P55-based motherboards at launch (and indeed, it's looking like at least one vendor will be integrating the feature in its retail package via expansion card). That doesn't matter here, though, as the P7P55 WS Supercomputer either gets by with its six onboard 3 Gb/s SATA ports or takes advantage of Asus' special SASsaby controllers, 3 Gb/s SAS cards optimized for the company's WS-series boards.

Of course, if you wanted to go even more modern, you could drop one of LSI's new 6 Gb/s SAS cards into the platform.
