Intel smart response is a bit dated (over 6 months old) the best boost you can expect from an Intel solution is in the range of 50 MBps. Alternatively, with OCZ Synapse drives and Dataplex driver you can get up to 400 MBps performance. Generally the OCZ Synapse gives you double the speed of smart response.
So, rather then go with Intel's SRT I could use OCZ Synapse and their Dataplex driver to get a much faster SSD performance level? I have not installed the SSD I purchaed but could return it and get the 64gb OCZ instead. It is less then 20 dollars more then the SSD drive I purchased.
Is there someplace I could get detailed instuctions? Would my system need to be setup with RAID in the BIOS or is it possible to use the OCZ drive and drivers with my existing non-raid system?
Thanks for the help !!!
