That is simply the name of the chipset itself. When you select each SATA channel in the list, what does it show for the Negotiated Link Speed?
both are 6Gbps capable.
Nice! Just out of curiosity, did your MacBook Pro ship with that Western Digital hard disk or have you upgraded it?

OP, sorry but you're fooling yourself. 6g is not stable in the optical.
hard drive is upgrade. it was TOSHIBA.
? what do you mean unstable in the optical drive ? it's a 6Gbps link. if it's an issue of shielding, just wrap the damn cord in aluminium foil.
My early 2011 17" 2.3 i7 has both Sata III as well.
OP, what were you expecting? My early 2008 15" MPB has SATA 3 also. Were you expecting something else other than what the early 2008's have?
Huh? SATA III is NOT equal to SATA 3.0 Gbps.
SATA III, as OP has shown, equals 6.0 Gbps.
Users have found in 15" and 17" 2011 MBPs that SATA III (6Gbps) SSDs have stability issues in the optical bay if the optical bay port has a 6Gbps Link Speed. Apple does not advertise their Macs as SATA III capable, only offers SATA II SSDs in the main drive bay and only intends the optical bay to be used for an optical drive.
There was a firmware update for the early 2011 MBPs released that addresses issues with SATA III SSDs but only in the main hard drive bay not the optical bay.
I actually meant early 2011, not 2008 and Sata III, not 3.
I was able to get SATA III 6Gb working reliably in the optical bay.

Just a quick question folks. I have an early 2011 17" MBP which has the slower SATA II connection in the optical bay. I'm planning use that connection for a second 512GB Curcial M4 hard disk for mainly internal storage. True, I will not get the full speed but that is alright with me but my concern is will it be stable?
