Andy Arkusinski - What's the difference between Hardware and Software RAID?
Joseph Sacco - Wants to upgrade his Mac with a SSD, wondering about the types of SATA and if they are backwards compatible.
- SATA = "Serial ATA" - The bus that connects your computer to its mass storage devices like hard drives, SSDs and optical drives
- SATA Revision 1 = 1.5 Gbps
- SATA Revision 2 = 3 Gbps
- SATA Revision 3 = 6 Gbps
- SATA Revision 3.2 = 16Gbps
- Aside from speed, SATA Revision 3.1 and up integrated support for PCI Express connected SSD drives and Native TRIM queueing for SSD drives.
- Revision 3.2 is really designed for embedded SATA devices
- The important point is that 3.0 and down are all backwards compatible
