Replacement of Harddrive: SSD with SATA 3

Hey there,

I have read that the new OCZ Vertex3 SSD will have an SATA 3 6.0Gbit/s connection. Does the SATA controller of the new MacBook Pro series (8,1 8,2 8,3) supports SATA 3?

Thank you for your support!

I believe that the harddrive will work regardless if the SATA controller is SATA 3 or not, it just won't at its full speeds. That SSD will still provide a very nice performance boost though. SATA 3 is backwards compatible

Don't forget to mark whichever answer satisfies your question, if any.

Hi Skippy722,

Thank you for your reply.

The performance of a SSD drive with SATA 2 is quite nice. I have currently installed a Vertex2.

But I was wondering if I can reach the full speed of 550MB/s with a Vertex 3 SSD via SATA 3 in the new MacBook Pro.


Via SATA3, yes you will see full speeds, in a perfect world. There are other issues, so those numbers are just the absolute maximum that the drive can do.

The article cited by mayer is about last year's notebooks. Apparently the HDD shows as SATA 3, but not the DVD drive (that may be a SW limitation; a similar situation happened with SATA 2)

My macbook late 2009 has sata-2 hard drive interface. I got a SSD SATA 3, Kingston Hyper SSD 120. Will it work if I connect the ssd sata3 with the sata2 connector inside my macbook?
