What is the difference between Intel’s SATA3 and gsata3 ports?
The ports labeled as “SATA3” are controlled by the Intel chipset. The “GSATA3” ports are controlled by the Marvel chipset.

What is the difference between SATA I and SATA II?
SATA I (revision 1.x) interface, formally known as SATA 1.5Gb/s, is the first generation SATA interface running at 1.5 Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 150MB/s. SATA II (revision 2.x) interface, formally known as SATA 3Gb/s, is a second generation SATA interface running at 3.0 Gb/s.
What is the bandwidth of a SATA III interface?
The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 300MB/s. SATA III (revision 3.x) interface, formally known as SATA 6Gb/s, is a third generation SATA interface running at 6.0Gb/s. The bandwidth throughput, which is supported by the interface, is up to 600MB/s.
What is a gsata port on motherboard?
Then use the GSATA (don’t know why it’s called that, it’s just normal SATA on a different controller) ports. More sharing options… More sharing options… Basically your motherboard has two different SATA-Controllers.
