Sustained Sequential Read: Up to 500 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s) Sustained Sequential Write: Up to 175 MB/s (SATA 6Gb/s)
Does the SATA6Gb/s mean that it can only function at full speed on a SATA 6Gb/s port?
So after more research it looks like I am seeing that a SATA III drive functions just fine on a SATA II port but it will be throttled to keep the drive operating within the ports capabilities... which is a head scratcher if your runnning a single drive on that one port. Even if it was reading and writing simultaneously, it would be running around 675MBs out of 3GBs so... theoretically wouldn't it not really matter which ports you have since you can only run a single drive on each SATA port?
