Really sheds light on the limitations of “old school” SATA3/6Gbps.

Perspective has changed quite a bit in 2 short years, here’s a look at a related discussion from April 2011:

Don’t forget that the PCIe bus does tie straight into the CPU now bypassing the chipset for even more bandwidth and reduced latency.
