Default Is Sata 3 GB/s the same thing as SATA II 3 GB/s?

In my mobo manual it says it can only be Sata 1.5 GB/s not Sata 3 GB/s. But it does say it can have a SATA II 3 GB/s. On Newegg, it only says Sata 3 GB/s, does that mean they are the same? i.e. is there such a thing as Sata 3 GB/s?

yes.

if if you are worried about backward compatibility...

SATA is designed to be backward and forward compatible with future revisions of the SATA standard.[11]

According to the hard drive manufacturer Maxtor, motherboard host controllers using the VIA and SIS chipsets VT8237, VT8237R, VT6420, VT6421L, SIS760, SIS964 found on the ECS 755-A2 which was manufactured in 2003, do not support SATA 3 Gbit/s drives.
