The Inspiron N7110 Notebook supports SATA 2 "ONLY" Any purchase of a SATA III 6gb will only interface at II 3gb. I blew 100 extra to find this.

Are chipset's written in stone? or merely designed to prevent flashing the motherboard with new capabilities, and perpetuate the constant upgrade to the next one, no doubt limited again once a new interface comes down the pipes. Hopefully optical/quantum computers will obliterate chipsets??

Chipsets aren't written in stone, but they are written in silicon - they can't be flash-upgraded, and mainboards are designed around them, so they can't be upgraded any other way, either.

"Chipsets aren't written in stone, but they are written in silicon - they can't be flash-upgraded, and mainboards are designed around them, so they can't be upgraded any other way, either."

Sorry, my comments were out of frustration, not judgement. However:

All software/hardware are designed to allow the companies to reap the financial cost in R&D, and collateral economic rewards for stockholders. Science, and price earn ratios, factor into the introduction of successive evolution in computer science.

Physics do constrain transfer rates in silicone; economics do, as evident by successive motherboards, and chipset that transfer at SATA 3. Technology is rolled out to coincide with techno/mobs, like Apple’s meaningless perennial iPhone’s permutations. It's the biggest in stock value to boot.
