Intel P55 and P57 chipsets won't support SATA 3

Posted on Tuesday, February 24 2009 @ 01:25:28 CET by

FUD Zilla reports Intel's upcoming P55, which arrives in Q3 2009, and the P57 that comes in Q1 2010, won't support SATA 3.
This comes as quite a surprise, as AMD prepares its SB820 Southbridge that should have SATA 3 support and this Southbridge should launch in early 2010. Since both P55 and P57 are single chip chipsets Intel will have to release a new chipset to get SATA 3 support.

The SATA 3 specification will offer up to 750MB/s transfers while SATA 3 offers 3Gb/s or if we talk gigabytes only 375MB/s. Some SSD drives will definitely need SATA 3 bandwidth, especially when raided, and we are sure that Intel will get a chipset with SATA 3 support, but obviously not in Q1 2010.

Wonder if they'll support USB 3
