This driver version of the Intel(R) 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller is capable of providing support for fault tolerant and high capacity SATA (serial ATA) RAID 5 arrays and fault tolerant and high performance SATA RAID 10 arrays. This driver can likewise deliver support for high capacity SATA RAID 0 arrays and SATA RAID 1 arrays that are redundant. It can provide support for AHCI and the Intel Matrix Storage Manager as well. The technology behind this manager is capable of providing heightened performance, protection and expandability for mobile and desktop platforms. Whether utilizing multiple or only one hard drive, users can benefit from improved performance and reduced power consumption. Further, when utilizing multiple drives, users are allotted additional defense against data loss when one of the hard drive fails. Critical digital memories are safeguarded against hard drive failure in the event that the system is set for any of the 3 RAID levels that are fault tolerant such as RAID 10, 5 or 1.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
By flawlessly storing data copies on one or more hard drives, any drive may fail without the user having to experience system downtime or data loss. In the event that the failed drive is replaced with a replacement drive, data fault tolerance can be effortlessly restored. The Intel Matrix Storage technology implemented by the driver for the Intel(R) 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller also enhances disk intensive retrieval operations’ performance. It does this by combining 2 to 6 hard drives in a configuration of RAID 0. This results in easier and simultaneous data access on every drive which speeds up the response time on operations that are data intensive. In addition, because of drive load balancing, system with RAID 1 may benefit from faster data reads and boot times. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Intel(R) 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
