Gigabyte motherboard with SATA III spotted

Posted on Tuesday, May 26 2009 @ 17:33:44 CEST by

TweakTown visited Gigabyte today and after they passed the H1N1 swine flu test they saw a couple of interesting things like the first motherboard with SATA III (6Gb/s). The first motherboards with this technology will arrive soon, like the GA-EP55-UD5 and GA-EP55-UD4P, and Seagate will provide the first SATA III drives.
Regular hard disk drives struggle to even saturate SATA-II bandwidth, but current SSD drives already go very close. SATA-III or SATA 6 Gbit/s will offer maximum theoretical speeds of up to 750MB/s vs. 375MB/s of SATA-II. The chip used is from Marvell and is a SATA-II/III combo design supporting four SATA-III ports and six SATA-II ports with RAID 0 and 1 support as well as port multiplier. It is ready and working right now, although with a lack of drives, we were unable to run any tests.
