Intel was quick to fulfill the needs of their customer base and set their sights on an on-board solution that allows system builders to bring the performance gains of solid state technology to mainstream customers.
The end product was the Z68 chipset.
Z68 includes Intel’s Smart Response Technology, also known as on-board SSD caching and is part of Intel’s Rapid Response Technology that controls RAID functions on Intel chipsets.
Today we’re going to look at two solutions for bringing Smart Response Technology to your system. Both are based on GIGABYTE motherboards, some of the best we’ve used to date. Since Intel SRT requires a Z68 (or future) chipset, a new motherboard is required right from the start. Intel Smart Response Technology should become a part of most near future Intel chipsets and we expect to see the technology for several years to come.
