I'm running Ubuntu on a laptop and am shopping to upgrade to an SSD.
Based on the specs for this drive for example, it seems like I should figure out what version of SATA my computer will support before I buy.
I don't want so shell out the big bucks for a really fast drive if my SATA controller will be the bottleneck anyway. Does this make sense?
Newegg presents this as SATA 2 (SATA II) running at 3Gbps and SATA 3 (SATA III) running at 6 Gbps.
What tools can I use in Ubuntu to determine if my computer will support SATA 3?
