DL380G3 with 642 controller and Ultra320 drives

Using this configuration will we get Ultra320 performance out of the DL380G3? We have seen the following article which causes us some doubt - does the reference to enclosure include the internal drive bays?

Hi

if you pluged those internal drives in 642 Controller, you will get Ultra320 Performance.

the article seems to suggest it would fall back to Ultra2!! Anyone out there got this config and can confirm Ultra320 performance??

it would only fall back to Ultra2 if you had an external enclosure that only goes up to Ultra2.

If you use the internal drive bays of the DL380, you will get Ultra320 speeds.

Resolved - we installed the drives and checked via HP management - the 5i attached drives were Ultra3 and the 642 attached were responding as Ultra320 - thanks
