This did come up as a side note. I brought it up because we asked about the hdmi input problem. They are aware of the hdmi input issue and they are working on it. The fix might come in the form of a bios update. There is no fix right now but the potential fix could be a bios update. I said I really don't want to go past A08 because I don't want my ssd throttled. The answer indicated that the SATAIII problem was a chipset thing and not a BIOS thing. I never actually tried A09 myself so I could not speak intelligently on the problem. It made me think that maybe the Sata III thing is a problem intermittently all the time no matter the BIOS revision you're running. I decided to do more testing on this myself. Honestly I never benched my ssd with A09. I decided to flash and test before pressing the issue. Besides, there wasn't an engineer who deals with that on the call. We had Louis and he's a GPU guy. I can tell you he REALLY knows his business too. I could have asked him questions for two more hours.
