Yoga 300-11 only SATA2 mode

Hello, guys,

I have a question about my Yoga 300-11IBY after SSD upgrade. I replaced the 500 GB HDD with a 256 GB SSD, which is deffinitely SATA3, but it runs in SATA2 mode in my device. I installed all the drivers from Lenovo site, updated BIOS to latest version, but I'm stuck to SATA II. According to Lenovo, the interface is SATA III (Flex 3 and Yoga 300 are the same machine) Lenovo does not offer SATA driver, so I'm using the one included in Windows 10 x64.

Please, help me to force the SATA controller in SATA3 mode. The exact device is Lenovo Yoga 300-11IBY, machine type 80M0, S/N ******** .

Thank you in advance,

Best regards

Could you post a weblink showing the SSD specs, ie if you purchased SSD online.

Or you could state the brand and model number.

Thank you for the answer. This is the disk, but the 256 GB is now out of stock. All the software I used report it as SATAIII 6Gb/s. I'll post screenshots later.

What makes you think it is running in Sata II mode, which is 3 GB\s?

 Here is a review of the same disk. It's in russian language, but from the pictures you can see that the speeds are quite different in SATAIII mode.
