Will Samsung SSD 840 EVO use it's full potential?


I've decided to upgrade my old iMac.

It's an 20" mid 2007, Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, EMC 2133.

I've invested in a Samsung SSD 840 EVO, Model: MZ-7TE500.

I've looked around in the "Answers" for Device; "iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210". And I have one concern... Will it use it's full potential on my old mac?

Kind regards,

You may find going with a hybrid drive (SSHD) would be a better setup for you.

A hybrid drive is a standard HD with a SSD mounted with it to act as a very deep cache. The benefit of using a hybrid is you hold onto the large storage of a HD but get the quickness of the SSD. These drives are also cheaper than a straight SSD and you don't need to swap out the optical drive if you want both your HD and SSD (less work) and you'll get the best I/O for your storage.

Your iMac has a SATA II (3Gb/s) bus for the hard drive slot. The 840EVO supports up to SATA III (6Gb/s).

In short, you won't be able to truly use the SSD to its fullest potential. That being said, installing the SSD in the iMac will still make a very noticeable increase in speed and responsiveness.

Thank you for the reply.

Is there ways to make my old mac SATA III compatible?


Sorry no you can't upgrade the SATA port logic on your logic board.
