    News - ASUS to bring SATA 6Gb/s performance to complete line of P55 boards

    You may need an optional accessory, though.

    ASUS have already experimented this with their erm.. subsidiary .. ASROCK. On some of the new ASROCK motherboards, a SATA3 card is also being provided.

    Are there even any 6G SATA drives available to buy in the UK yet?

    Re: News - ASUS to bring SATA 6Gb/s performance to complete line of P55 boards

    I'm hoping that these expansion cards will become cheaper and more widely available as the SSD market adopts SATA 6G. Having just bought a new mobo I'm going to wait for a major overhaul untill SATA 6G and USB 3.0 are integrated as standard on most motherboards, or at least easily available via this style of add in cards.

    SATA 6G is a neccessary step with the move towards SSDs though...

    Yeah, they'll benefit future SSDs. But I am frankly not too bothered with burst speed.

    Snap, this is a must have before I will upgrade my PC. I simply don't see the point in laying down what will probably be £~100 for a new MB for a sexy new i5 without it having both usb3 and sata6g onboard... I ain't particularly bothered if there are any 6g SSDs on the market or USB3 devices, as I ain't bothered about buying a SSD just yet and I will be interested in getting a large USB3 key (prob 32gb+) when they come out for moving files around, my current 16gb key takes forever to fill and empty. Getting a MB that doesn't support these out the box is just daft, unless you are happy to spend more cash a few months down to road to support these techs, or live without them.

    Also I am sure i read an article a few days ago about testing an existing SATA2 SSD on a 6G board and they found that it increased the read/write speeds significantly, can't find the article now of course

    Nice to see that ASUS have chose a PCIe x4 rather than a x1 slot. ASRock's x1 offering wouldnt provide enough bandwidth.

    Not yet, but if you buy a future proof board now and it lasts 18 - 24 months, then I reckon you'll have some use for it..

    I remember my DFI Nvidia2 board had one SATA port and people said the same thing. Well board is still working on the kids computer and has a SATA drive in it now.

    Just remember, by the time you can actually buy something - it's obsolete!

    Its good that 2 new things are coming out about the same time. Don't want to be buying a new board and then find out a new technology is on a new board just a few weeks later

    Would these add-in cards work on other Asus boards? and if not, why exactly?
