SATA 3 for X220T?

Does the X220T support 6.0 Gbps for SATA 3? I looked through the tabook but I only see 3.0 Gbps. It is a QM67 Chipset though, where I found on the Intel description for the QM67 Chipset, "Serial ATA (SATA)* 6 Gb/s and 3 Gb/s High-speed storage interface supporting up to 6 Gb/s transfer rate for improved data access. Provides up to six SATA ports at 3 Gb/s with up to two ports supporting 6 Gb/s transfer rates."

 

It's says up to two ports supporting 6 Gb/s, but does the X220 or the X220T support it?

yes, the X220 and X220T support 6 Gb/s on the main SATA drive and second SATA drive installed in an ultrabase with ultrabay drive adapter.   the mSATA port supports 3 Gb/s.

Re: SATA 3 for X220T?

Hello,

   I have a X220T and I'm thinking of changing its SSD with this Crucial M4 because it is faster:

It would work?

Thank you

as long as the crucial M4 is the 7 mm thick model, then it would work.
