Hmmm, the schematics have the SATA-II interface. Did they not stuff the 
connector and 0.01uF caps?

Also the SATA section of the schematic has this note: "Internal SATA 
clock reference was confirmed on tapeout TO2.0. Optional parts have been 
removed from further production runs." The schematic does not indicate 
what parts are "optional". So I really don't know what this means yet.
