The infobox being renders the "speed" field as "Capacity" for some reason, so it displays as: "Capacity 1.5, 3.0, 6.0 Gbit/s". This is obviously completely wrong. "Gbit/s" is not a unit of capacity. I have no idea how Wikipedia's bizarre, unusable template system works, so the best I can do is leave a note here.

It took me about 5 minutes of searching about to find and edit Template: Infobox Computer Hardware Bus to fix this bug. Not sure if I broke something elsewhere but it is now correct here. Tom94022 (talk) 03:52, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Great job! Hopefully there will be no associated regressions. -- Dsimic (talk) 04:05, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

SATA revision 3.2 - 16 Gbit/s[edit]

Is there any reason, why for 3.2 2 GB/s is not given? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:16, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Please have a look at the SATA Express article regarding the issues related to increasing speed of the SATA interface. -- Dsimic (talk) 17:20, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
