    Intel Rapid Storage Technology on G75VX Windows 7 ?

    Anybody installed Intel Rapid Storage Technology on G75VX for Windows 7 ? Do you think it would make difference on performance ? and whats the best driver version for it? I didnt want to try because I read it somewhere once you installed theres no way to uninstall it since it wont show up in control panel > uninstall programs ...

    I've read many articles that state the Intel RST driver will deliver better performance. Does anyone have a definitive answer on this?

    How can you tell if it is installed on your computer or not? I just looked all over and don't see it.

    you should ALWAYS install the IRST driver ragardless of RAID!

    It has the SATA / AHCI controller driver. that's what determines the performance!

    Danish is correct. IRST is good if u have HDD's but if you have an SSD in your system is absolutely necessary for good stable performance and safety of the drive ofcorse..

    It does. I am pretty sure I found the most recent driver for it. Any way to confirm?

    I found that the one from ASUS's site gives me the highest performance:

    IRST 11.5.0.1207
