I think you mean 1500Mbps = 1.5Gbps = 187.5MBps = 1.875GBps

AFAIK, SATA uses a start and stop bit for each byte, so the 1.5Gbps are
still 150MB/sec, which explains the 120MB/sec people usually get from the
interface at the common ~80% efficency for ATA interfaces.

BTW, 187.5MB/sec = 0.1875GB/sec (0.1831 to be exact) not 1.875GB/sec which
is 1875MB/sec.
