AMD 890GX vs 6Gbps SATA?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

All of the ad copy and doc I can find claim that the sata controller in
the 890gx supports 6Gbps sata3.  But I still get this:

ahci 0000:00:11.0: AHCI 0001.0200 32 slots 6 ports 3 Gbps 0x3f impl SATA mode
ata2: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
ata2.00: ATA-8: WDC WD1002FAEX-xxxxxx, 05.xxxxx, max UDMA/133

I hadn't noticed before because that box's first drive only supports 3 Gbps.

Does the 6Gpbs mode require that all of the disks are sata3?  (That would
be /most/ annoying, given that optical drives all seem to be 1.5Gbps.)

Did MSI screw something up on the board?

Or is the ad copy exaggerative?

I took a look though the bios config; I didn't find anything relevant.
