I ran SiSoftware's Sandra which gave me the following data:

Sandra Hardware Report

How can I interpret if this computer (HP Pavilion dv6-6b50ep Entertainment Notebook PC) supports SATA 3?

If the values displayed are true, then yes.

G3 is probably generation 3 abbreviated. SATA600 stands for the the 600MB/s peak throughput of SATA 3.


Your laptop tech specs (apparently a model specific to Portugal) mention the Intel HM65 Express chipset. According to intel:

High-speed storage interface supporting up to 6 Gb/s transfer rate for improved data access. Provides up to 6 SATA ports at 3 Gb/s with up to 2 ports supporting 6 Gb/s transfer rates.

I'm skeptical about the "up to" part, but other than that, it should support SATA 3.
