Key

Chip Integrated Circuit or IC family, associated with this column of data
Driver Linux driver(s)
NCQ Supports FPDMA
DMA++ DMA engine is more advanced than standard PCI IDE BMDMA engine
hotplug Supports interrupt-driven device hotplug and hot unplug. Note that hotplug can often be "hacked" via polling, even if hardware does not natively support it
PMP Supports SATA port multipliers
SM PMP Switching Method
  CBS   Supports Command Based Switching port multiplier
  FBS   Supports FIS Based Switching port multiplier
AN Asynchronous Notification (Serial ATA II feature)
NS NCQ Streaming (Serial ATA 3.0 feature)
NQM NCQ Queue Management (Serial ATA 3.0 feature)

SoC ICs have their line highlighted with colour to avoid confusion as those are special low power devices suited for specific tasks and provide minimal user interaction

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 Not supported by the driver yet
  2. When all 15 devices are attached at PMPs, only 8 devices can use FBS, the rest are limited to CBS.
  3. 3.00 3.01 3.02 3.03 3.04 3.05 3.06 3.07 3.08 3.09 3.10 3.11 3.12 3.13 3.14 3.15 3.16 3.17 3.18 3.19 3.20 3.21 3.22 3.23 3.24 3.25 3.26 Currently, no driver has been released for this SATA controller yet
  4. Port multiplier NOT supported in SB600 ASIC revisions A12 and A11
  5. Total number of SATA drives connected directly to the host and behind the port multiplier should not exceed 4
  6. 6.0 6.1 6.2 6.3 6.4 6.5 Generic support via PCI class code match
  7. Maximum NCQ depth is limited to 16 outstanding entries
  8. Stepping A0 is not supported by the current drivers because workarounds are needed to fix errata
  9. 9.0 9.1 9.2 9.3 9.4 Supported only by some components in AHCI or RAID mode
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 10.5 10.6 10.7 Disabled by the respective driver usually because of hardware flaw or bogus feature
  11. 11.0 11.1 Depends on chip variants. SPM bit in the CAP register is set if supported.
  12. Port multiplier NOT supported in 3400 Chipset
  13. 13.0 13.1 Port multiplier is supported only on SATA port 4 and 5 in AHCI or RAID mode
  14. Possible hardware bug exposed by recent kernels [1]
  15. Asynchronous Notification NOT supported on revisions Bx
  16. NCQ NOT supported in MCP61
  17. 17.0 17.1 17.2 17.3 17.4 17.5 17.6 17.7 17.8 Driver is under development
