My IMac has the buggy NVIDEA MCP 79 SATA 2 controller which doesn’t play well with sandforce controller, so was confident would be ok with the Marvell controller now being used in the ULTRA 2 SSD of which I purchased the 480Gb drive. However only get SATA 1 link. I see on the data sheet there is one of 2 firmware listed as correct due to later drives having a slight hardware difference, anyone know what this difference is, or can help to explain why only SATA 1 connection. I also bought a 120 gig drive for my 2009 MacBook which has same NVIDEA controller and that runs at 3GB (SATA2)
Any help appreciated.
