Anyone think it will be possible to use a Sata III SSD on the new MBPs?
I'm sure it will be possible to use, I'm just not as sure that it will actually use SATA III. You can use one with the current MBPs, but it will just use the SATA II speed. I imagine it will likely use the SATA III standard though, as that is included in the sandy bridge chipsets.
Yea, it'll work fine, but it will be at SATA 2 speeds.
Why would it be only SATA II speed? Unless the OP meant by "new MBP" a new computer bought from current stock.
I assumed that s/he meant "new MBP" as in the up-coming revision. That chipset has 2 SATA III connections, one of which will serve the primary hard drive.
If you wait for the next "new" MBP, you'll get full 6.0 data rates.
SATA III 6gbps & usb3.0 Ive Bridge native support, probably Q1 2012
I sure hope so. The speeds of the upcoming SSDs are bananas!
Yeah I meant actually run at SataIII speeds. I wouldn't spend extra money on a Sata III SSD for Sata II speeds.
Even at SATA II speeds, SATA III SSDs should be faster than SATA II SSDs
The Cougar Point chipset, which will be used for Sandy Bridge MacBook Pros, has two SATA 3 ports on it. Which also happen to be the two ports that don't have problems.
So yes, Apple will use them.
And yes, you will be able to replace your standard HDD with a SATA 3 SSD. Although I expect Apple won't sell them BTO, so you will likely have to do it yourself. But that's OK, you'll save yourself a lot of money.
