recommendation for sata III controller cards


spoilt

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't buy a SATA III PCI-E card. As most of them use the Marvell controller, I wouldn't buy one. The reason why is the Marvell controllers won't reach the spec of the SSD.

 

Unless you find one that doesn't use a Marvell controller. Google some reviews for the product.

Any card to supply full SATA III speed will need to be in at least a PCI-E x4 (does x2 exist?) slot, otherwise a card in a standard single PCI-E lane is the same implementation as the Marvell 9128 on boards now, and so no faster.

 

I would likely be cheaper to buy a P67 board and a i5-2500k, and get two real SATA III ports, than buying an LSI card, which are really not aimed at the consumer market.
