GIGABYTE, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and computing hardware solutions today announced their latest EZ Smart Response utility that allows users to install Intel Smart Response Technology with the click of a mouse, even if their system is set to IDE mode, without having to reinstall their Windows operating system.
“One of the key benefits of GIGABYTE’s new Z68 Express chipset enabled motherboards is support for Intel’s Smart Response Technology, which delivers an exceptional performance boost for our customers,” commented Henry Kao, VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at GIGABYTE. “We hope that the majority of our customers enable this technology, and therefore we have developed our own unique EZ Smart Response utility that allows users to effortlessly set up Intel Smart Response technology so they can quickly experience the all performance benefits it has to offer.”
GIGABYTE is once again leading the industry for their support of Intel Smart Response Technology with the recent announcement of the world’s first range of Z68 mSATA enabled motherboards as well as the soon-to-be available GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD3-iSSD motherboard that comes pre-bundled with the 20GB Intel SSD 311 Series. With the launch of the EZ Smart Response utility, GIGABYTE is the only motherboard manufacturer to give their customers, whether using a standard SSD or onboard mSATA, the ability to quickly set up and install Intel Smart Response technology with the simple click of a mouse.
The GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response utility is a simple application that allows users to quickly and easily configure their system for Intel Smart Response Technology. In the past, enabling Intel Smart Response meant users needed to enter the BIOS in order to configure their system for RAID mode, which then required a complete reinstall of the operating system. Once that processes was complete, users then needed to install the Intel Rapid Storage Utility as well as configure Intel’s Smart Response Technology. GIGABYTE EZ Smart Response does all of this automatically, without users having to perform a complicated install process.
