Actually no, that's not true. not all SDD's have been running on SATA 3 Gbs (which is only partly congruent with SATA 3 itself).
Besides, I had read that some drive did run at 3.0 speeds. what I'm getting out of Apple's response, is that their own drives did run at 3.0, while (most) third party drives didn't.
Secondly, in response to your charge, If you actually *READ* my post, I said that the new Macbook Pro 13"/15" have "SATA/150-enabled drive controllers" I.E. THEY ARE NOT RUNNING AT SATA/3.0 SPEEDS. You are clearly arguing semantics.
I read your post twice, because it made no sense. All SATA controllers that are SATA 3.0 will run at 1.5 speeds, so that says nothing. When you said 150 enabled drive controllers, you clearly were saying that they were exactly that. Whatever you may say now.
It's not semantics. It's what you said. You could have said that the 3.0 controller was running at 1.5. Yours isn't the only post that said that Apple was using a 1.5 drive controller.
Seeing as how it's not what you meant, I'll agree with what you say you meant.
Anyways, it is all irrelevant now as Apple has released a patch that corrects the issue by enabling SATA/3.0 on the controller. Obviously, as I have been saying for days now, this WAS A LEGITIMATE ISSUE, and that is indeed why Apple fixed it so quickly.
Yes, it is irrelevant, and I certainly didn't say that it wasn't a legit issue.
