The hard drive controller is capable of SATA 6G, yes.  That said, to use that much bandwith you'll need a solid state drive - no single spinning hard drive comes anywhere near delivering even 3G/s let along 6.

Hi w00tt,

The XPS L502X system uses Serial-ATA III(SATA) hard drives, SATA hard drives offer Data transfer rates of 6 Gbits per second.

Please reply for further questions.
