Default Red flag on current SATA 6 Gbit/s!

Quote:
The first problem is that the only SATA 6 Gbit controller available, the Marvell 88SE9123, only connects with one PCI-Express link. At best then, you get 500 MB/s, which is less than the theoretical speeds of SATA 6 Gbit/s, without counting the fact that this bandwidth will have to be shared between the two ports supported by the chip. At worst then, you’ll have 250 MB/s per port!

The second problem is that the additional PCI-Express lanes on the Intel chipsets don’t work at 5 GT/s but at 2.5 GT/s, even on the latest P55 Express. A simple design linking the Marvell 88SE9123 to the P55 Express will therefore limit it to 250 MB/s, which is less than the bandwidth you get with SATA 3 Gbit/s!

The P55 chipset connects to the CPU over DMI. I'll be back after seeing what bandwidth that has.

Urgh? In the block diagram it says the connection to the CPU is 2GB/s.

From the Intel datasheet:

Direct Media Interface
— 10 Gb/s each direction, full duplex
