ML350p Gen8 - Sata motherboard connector speeds

Hello everyone,

There are 3 sata connectors on the server motherboard (one used by optical drive).   Can someone tell me if they are Sata II or Sata III???

I was disappointed to learn the p420i runs at Sata II with Sata drives attached instead of SAS.

TIA

Hi,

As for my understanding embedded SATA ports are designated for the optical drives and it runs at SATA 1.5 speed.

HP Smart Array P420i Controller-Specification

Disk Drive and Enclosure
6 Gb/s SAS (Serial Attached SCSI)
Interface - Transfer rate
3 Gb/s SATA (Serial ATA)

 

FYI,

SATA I (revision 1.x) interface, formally known as SATA 1.5Gb/s, is the first generation SATA interface running at 1.5 Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 150MB/s.

SATA II
 (revision 2.x) interface, formally known as SATA 3Gb/s, is a second generation SATA interface running at 3.0 Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 300MB/s.

SATA III (revision 3.x) interface, formally known as SATA 6Gb/s, is a third generation SATA interface running at 6.0Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 600MB/s. This interface is backwards compatible with SATA 3 Gb/s interface.
