It's definitely not SATA 3. It's from the X25 series, but don't know for sure which model exactly. Search other threads as you might find more details about it.

Lenovo does not currently ship any SATA 3 drives. It is probably either the X25-M or an Intel 320 series. There have been reports of some recent orders shipping with a special (with a part number suffix) 320.


Edit: FYI the Intel 320 is only a SATA II SSD. The Intel 510 SSD is SATA III and does not come in a 160GB version.
