My HP laptop does not have a bios setting for this, it is automatic and it does support it.
If your new laptop has intell rapid storage support, you can look at the drives under advanced. One of the functions of AHCI is NCQ or Native Command Queuing.

Great tip re NCQ. Thanks.

The Free edition of HDTune will also display the NCQ status of each drive. This is a handy little utility that I place on all of my systems:
