NCQ = Native Command Queueing, semilar to TCQ but with different
commands and sematics, still limitted to 32 tags. IIRC there is no "bus

long as you dont use port multipliers that is).

Either by asking then vendor or by visual inspection, you cannot tell pr
software, at least not in any reliable way AFAIK.
