Not sure what you're referring to here. Are you referring to the SATA connection? If so, your SSD/HDD will perform as advertised.

Generally it will perform as advertised, there are a few "cheaper" laptops that reduce the performance of the optical drive as a cost saving measure, but this is becoming increasingly rare.
