It looks like the inclusion of USB 3.0 to the N002 didn't slow down the SATA II performance. In the charts you can watch the performance against the Corsair Nova, another Barefoot ECO controlled drive that uses the same flash.

Looking at the USB 3.0 read speed, the X58A-UD7 does have a speed limit, but it is much faster than USB 2.0.

On the SATA II connection we had a bit of a dip, but it was only briefly. The average write speeds for both SATA and USB 3.0 were nearly identical.
