Y580 SATA version(2 or 3)?

Hello.

 

I would like to buy a SSD drive for my Lenovo Y580 and put it into my current HDD slot.

 

But what is the version of SATA controller in this motherboard? I have read that default HDD slot is for sure SATA III, but when I run HWInfo on my laptop it shows SATA II:

Could anyone confirm if Lenovo Y580 has SATA III controller and it's only HWInfo mistake that it shows SATA II or my Lenovo Y580 has SATA II controller for default HDD slot.

 

Thanks.

 

Mod comment: Over sized picture converted to link.

Somewhere I heard that it is sata 3, and it shows sata 2 because of hard drive, but im not 100 percent sure. Better buy the msata ssd and you will have both hdd and ssd in your machine

Thanks for answer.

 

I know I can buy mSATA but I wanted to replace DVD with HDD and put SSD into default HDD slot.
