I'm looking for a new SSD replacement (to a stock Hitachi HDD) for my Asus UX32A (Core i5 modification, with 24 GB SSD, 500 GB hdd, 4 GB ram).
My choice fell on Samsung 840 EVO, but then I've scanned my system, and found that my HDD connected through SATA 2 (while my chosen SSD connects through SATA 3).
I now doubt that the speed gain from the SSD (sams has SATA3) will be great.
Maybe I'm wrong, and my Hitachi works on SATA2 cause it supports only SATA2, and SSD will be working with SATA3. How can I check it?
Does an SATA3 SSD disk work with an SATA2 port/motherboard and if so, what are the problems or performance losses that I might expect?
