6G and 3G drives compatibility on MSA2000i G2

I have a compatibility question:

We have a MSA2000i G2 with 12x 450GB 3G disks. And those disks are obsolete. If we install new 6G Disk mixed with 3G in a new drive enclosure will they work?

Regards,
Rezina

Hardware List:
AJ800A - MSA2312i G2 Dual Controller
AJ737A - MSA2 450GB 3G 15K SAS
AJ750A - MSA2000 Dual I/O 3.5-inch
AP859A - P2000 450GB 6G SAS 15K SAS

The 6G drives ar supported on a MSA 200i G2:

The only point is that they will run at 3G.
