Can anyone tell me what SATA revision the Studio XL uses please? I can’t seem to find anything in any of the documentation.
For this device, the “transfer rate” is billed as 1350MB/s. Thunderbolt 2 is rated at 2498MB/s over both channels or 1249MB/s over a single channel. Where does the 1350MB/s figure come from?
Also, if the SATA revision is 3.0 (which is what I suspect) then the data rate to and from the disk is limited to 600MB/s which would surely mean this is the effective speed of the device as the SATA interface is the bottleneck.
