Should I install Intel RST drivers on ideapad 330s?

I checked my drivers and only the AHCI driver was installed under BIOS/UEFI. So, my laptop must be configured under AHCI mode. Now, lenovo has Intel RST drivers for my model (Ideapad 330s-14IKB) on its website. Should I install this driver even if I laptop isn't configured in Intel RST?

Hi sanket39,


Welcome to the community forums. 


Based on this article:


"It is recommended that users install the latest version even if you don't use RAID as it contains the drivers for the SATA Controller which is responsible for HDD/SSD operation. Installing the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology Drivers ensure you have the best performance and transfer rates out of your HDD or SSD."
