This advise is mainly for SSD drives which may very well be lots faster than SATA buss. It is close to impossible to find a spinner that performs better than fastest SATA out there.

Fastest SSD you can install on a Mac Pro (cheesecrater) is a PCI-express card, avoiding SATA bottleneck and giving you easily ~1GBps performance.
