    Intel RST vs Windows AHCI drivers.


    Does anybody know whether the Intel RST drivers (in AHCI mode) perform better than the Windows installed SATA drivers? Has anyone uninstalled RST drivers? I get a warning that I will not be able to uninstall them.

    Intel RST AHCI driver for ICH10R?

    They hide stuff from you, probably to try and get you to upgrade. Intel's site says nothing about RSTe 4.2 or 4.3 drivers being supporting on anything other than C200 and C600 chipsets however, they work incredibly well on X79. On the same token, the latest RST drivers (for RAID,) also seems to work on my X79 in RSTe mode.

    Needless to say, I think Intel needs to consolidate RAID drivers into a single package and AHCI drivers into a single package as opposed to trying to support several different versions for several revisions of the same damn thing running probably the same damn software.

    I'm glad you got it to work but, I would have attempting forcing the installation of the newer AHCI driver. The first time I used the C200/C600 chipset RAID drivers on my X79 board, it didn't simply "accept" it and I had to force it to install. Ran great but, it wouldn't just take it.
    So does Intel: Download Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) User Interface and Driver

    All prior releases of RST should be in this list: Downloads for Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST)

    Intel RST AHCI driver for ICH10R?

    Yep, something I have found is Intel RAID drivers as they are called are also their AHCI SATA drivers, so they are perfectly safe to install even in non-RAID systems.

    Intel RST AHCI driver for ICH10R?

    ICH10R is support is discontinued in RST since 2013. If you're using some of the newer versions of Windows (8.1 and 10), you're better off using Microsoft's AHCI driver. It's more stable.

    Changing from the RST Optane driver to AHCI in an existing Windows 10: First of all, the system won't need a driver change to run Windows 10. Both AHCI and the PCIe drives are included in the RST Optane driver. It does both. So upgrading to my NVMe SSD would merely mean disabling the RST Optane software and exchanging the NVMe Optane M.2 card...
