YOGA 730-13IKB Keep Intel RST or GoTo Samsung Magician?

2018-10-06, 22:59 PM

I'm interested in better understanding the OEM install of Intel's RST.  My 730-13IKB is brand new and I intend to upgrade the OEM SSD from Hynix (256GB) to a Samsung 970 EVO (500GB or 1TB).  I have experience with Samsung and PCs w/RST.  This time around, I'm strongly interested in removing RST for Samsung Magician.  I do not and will not have local RAID.

 

Suggestions?

Thx for the prompt reply.  IRST is enabled and I'll keep it that way after SSD upgraded to 970 EVO.

 

May I ask, down-the-road, how would I apply any firmware upgrades Samsung may release for my new drive?

Intel Rapid Storage Technology is not just Raid.  It offers other functions.  When do you your SSD upgrade, leave IRST turned on.

IRST should already be enabled on your current setup.  If not, post back your findings.
