First SATA 6Gbps chipset is bottlenecked

Posted on Friday, June 05 2009 @ 00:01:32 CEST by

Bit Tech had a chat with EVGA today at Computex and heard the first SATA 6Gbps chipset on the market, the one from Silicon Image, is likely bottlenecked since it only connects via a PCI Express x1 interface.
EVGA replied it had looked into the first generation Silicon Image chipset but reckons that since it’ll be only connected via a PCI-Express x1 interface, it’ll likely be bottlenecked.

Not only that, but the SATA 6Gbps specification was only recently finalised, so there will be no products to take advantage of it for a while yet and the benefit versus cost to end user is limited for now.
