first, the Smart Array 532 supports 'ultra320' hdd, please check the link in hp.com:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10851_na/10851_na.html

and about ultra3 and ultra320, they are not same model; ultra320 backward-compatible ultra3.
"Most SCSI products are backward-compatible. While an Ultra320 SCSI may use an Ultra3 or Ultra160 controller to interface with a drive, such a configuration will not, achieve the faster drive's optimal data transfer rates."

"The SCSI terms Fast, Ultra or Ultra320 typically refer to data rate increases that move data faster on the bus, while the term Wide refers to adding more lanes to the bus, typically transferring 16 bits of data at one time rather than eight bits. Other differences between the standards include the maximum cable length and the number of devices that can exist on the same SCSI bus.
The subsets of Ultra3 are commonly called Ultra160 (160MB/s) and Ultra320 (320MB/s)."
