SSD Intel Dell S3700 not work in SATA3 mode.

Hello!
I have Intel Dell S3700 SSDSC2BA200G3T.

I connect it to SATA3 port with SATA3 cable but SSD works only as SATA2.


I found that there is some different DELL SSD Intel S3700 models, some 3GBps and some 6GBps.
3GBps (SATA2) models: Intel SSD DC S3700 100GB-800GB SATA (INTEL SSDSC2BA100G3T, INTEL SSDSC2BA200G3T, INTEL SSDSC2BA400G3T, INTEL SSDSC2BA800G3T)
6GBps (SATA3) models: Intel SSD DC S3700 6G 100GB-400GB SATA (INTEL SSDSC2BA100G3R, INTEL SSDSC2BA200G3R, INTEL SSDSC2BA400G3R and INTEL SSDSC2BA800G3R)

So, SSDSC2BA200G3T is SATA2 (3G) model.
I am right?

Sorry, but your link about Intel S3700 200GB drive.
But Intel Dell S3700 disks are a different series with incompatible firmware so your link did not help me 😞
because it does not say if the model SSDSC2BA200G3T has interface SATA2 or SATA3.

I found some info
https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/352646-dell-cachecade-and-r720xd-flex-bay?page=3#entry-324441...
I do not know if it's true or not, but my tests confirm that SSDSC2BA200G3T is a Sata2 disk.

Description of Firmware DL08 for Intel Dell S3700 series says that it applies to the drives "Intel SSD DC S3700 SATA" and "Intel SSD DC S3700 6G SATA" which are different series
