    mixed and contradictory info on Rapid Recover Technology for PCH(DP55) boards

    cnchang

      Hi,

       

      I haven't found an online article to clarify the availability of Intel Matrix Storage Manager's Rapid Recover Technology for DP55WB board. Neither have I found an online document showing users how to manually configure BIOS for using Core i5 750 or Core i7 860/870 CPUs in case they want to go beyond Auto/Default mode.

       

       

      Regarding Rapid Recover Technology, my asking about Rapid Recover for P55 is due to the lack of RRT info in the DP55WB Product Guide.

      http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dp55wb/sb/CS-030678.htm

       

      All the more so, the downloaded Product Guide File size 4.32MB(4,533,387 bytes) is very different from the listed file size 5,295,783 bytes.

       

      Therefore, even though I found DP55WB supporting RRT in the following articles, I still called Intel to verify this feature.

      1. http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/prodbrief/322333.pdf

      2. http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/chipsets/p55/p55-overview.htm

       

      Intel China first told me that Rapid Recover Technology is supported on PCH (or P55) boards based on this article:

      http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/cs-022304.htm

       

      But, later Intel China told me that the IMSM driver supporting RRT will be released some time in 2010/1. I was told this was not only referring to the Win 7 IMSM driver but also including  XP and Vista drivers. With mixed info received, I have yet found or been provided with any online Intel document to verify that IMSM driver is not ready for RRT info. I am surprised how this Intel RRT thing has progressed so far with mixed and contradictory info released. Intel needs to come up with a clean version spec!!!

       

      Has anyone found any online article about this? Does anyone know why the downloaded DP55WB_ProductGuide01_English.pdf file size is different? Has any DP55WB user tested Rapid Recover Technology on XP, Vista, or Win 7?
