we have hm77 chipset; so i think we have intel's built-in sata controller.

I believe it is the Sata 3.0 6gb/s intel controller.

Ok thanks for the info. Why i brought the question up is because intel 520 SSD has been showing a decrese of preformence when its connected to a Marvel controller.

well, for marvel controller, it could be firmware, it could be driver, or it could be other stuff.

intel 520 has no issue on g55. we have happy intel 520 users here 🙂

Good to know 🙂 I''ve used SSD on my macbook for a year and when i went over to this G55 it feels like im back into the stone age because of the 7200rpm HD.. so it has to go. Bought Intel 520, 240gb.
