Is there a speed diffrence between an SATA2 and SATA3 cable? Google search comes back woth conflicting reports and no solid answers because drives haven't been fast enought until now.
So, would using a SATA2 cable cause a Vertex 3 SSD hooked to an SATA3 MB to have slower speeds or jitter issues? Or are SATA2 and 3 cables the same and it's just marketing hype?
Cool, I am looking fwd to the M2 review. Please check for an "studdering" issue with the drive. Performance is important, but not if the drive locks up for 60 seconds... What are those problems anyway? Peoples firmware or driver issues?
What would be the best SATA3 SSD for my MB? I don't want to buy a drive that would be too fast for my controller to take advantage of.
I noticed that the new Vertex 3 Pro is coming out soon with transfer rates in the 500MB/s range. I was wondering if you knew if this MB's controller (Marvel 6G) was capable of that or not? I don't want to spend money for speeds that I can't achieve.
