Firmware update for new iMacs brings full support for SATA 3.0

Apparently, the EFI update released yesterday for the new iMacs did more than just correct the operation of the new Thunderbolt ports integrated into the machines. Other World Computing claims that the HDDs and SSDs bays available on Ma's new all-in-one computers have gained full support for the maximum 6Gbps speed provided by the SATA 3.0 interface, offering compatibility with much more powerful storage units.

OWC specializes in offering good upgrade kits for Apple computers and has promised to detail the differences in performance soon. Users who are interested in paying good money to take advantage of the novelty can opt for SSDs such as OCZ Vertex 3, which make the loading of files and programs (in addition to the operating system itself) much faster, resulting in a very satisfactory increase in productivity. .

Unfortunately, the same improvement was not enabled in the SuperDrives of the new iMacs, which continue to run on the SATA 2.0 standard of 3Gbps. A similar EFI update to the new all-in-one desktops was also offered to MacBooks Pro, but it is not yet known whether the problem diagnosed in the 17-inch model would have been resolved.
