How can I tell if my optical bay is sata rev 3.0? system report says this for the optical bay:

Vendor: Intel
Product: 6 Series Chipset
Link Speed: 6 Gigabit
Negotiated Link Speed: 1.5 Gigabit
Description: AHCI Version 1.30 Supported

main bay says 3 Gigabit negotiated link speed, so is the optical not sata 3?
TIA

The interface is SATA3, but the drive itself is not.
