P71 ODD Bay SATA Speed

Can anyone confirm that the port in the ODD bay is SATA 3 6G?


This is for a Thinkpad P71 - model 20HKCTO1WW.


I need more disk space and I want to use an ODD bay adapter for an SSD - the other three dedicated bays are already occupied.


The PSRef does sort of imply that SATA is 6G but the DVD drive is listed further down in the Storage section, so I'm not sure the specs apply to that bay too.


I did the same in my last Asus laptop - the main HDD was SATA 3 6G but the ODD port was only SATA 2, so I really need to be cautious and know the specs before I buy the bay adapter, or if I should replace the existing SATA SSD with a larger model.


Thanks in advance Smiley Happy
