Lenovo Thinkpad T430 SATA interfaces...

2018-09-13, 5:11 AM

the T430 has one 2.5" slot + another 2.5" slot through the caddy + one mSATA when you open the bottom.

 

Is the SATA interface for all 3 SATA3 6Gbps ?

It was long ago I installed a Samsung mSATA 840 EVO 500GB in my T430s, but I ended up using the 2.5" drive & slot because it was faster. I found out after, the mSATA was only running 3Gb. I can't say for the bay.

The two 2.5" bays (internal plus caddy) are SATA-III 6Gb/s. The mSATA is SATA-II 3Gb/s. I doubt the difference in performance is significant in practice.
