AMD Sata 6GB/second header!

ASMedia Sata 6GB/second header!

Both on my ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0

What is the difference of these headers? And if there is none, why have a difference?

There is no difference in the asmedia headers except they may be a bit faster than the amd ones. For some strange reason the board is made with only 5 sata3 amd headers and 2 ASMEDIA sata3 headers. :no: I believe the asmedia ports are extra ports because the asus chipset will only support 5.

Yeah it's usually speed. My board has Intel and Marvell. Definitely wouldn't want to use an SSD on Marvell over an Intel slot.

 

As for why most have two different brands could be pricing and controller's number of hdd support.
