This shows only the capabilities for the drive. For SATA Controller capabilities expand the "Bus" node and locate the respective SATA Controller device.

For 5400 rpm drives it does not matter whether they are connected to SATA-2 or SATA-3, because Bandwidth SATA-2 interface, they have almost threefold margin, and SATA-3 - well, the developer had new chips at hand, so he put them into the scheme.

Thanks a lot for this, and the illustration of the difference in drive capability listed by SATA port and the controller capability.  I too have been trying to find out if the desktop I have (not new) has SATA 3.0 (6G/s), which lead me to your great program!
