Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver 15.0.2.1044

There are two releases of the same driver version (15.0.2.1044) available:

 

  1. https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1ei113w.txt (2016/09/13)
  2. https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz1it01w.txt (2016/09/23)

The former I have installed. The latter carries a warning:

Caution: This package should not be installed if your system has PCIe SSD.
             Please use MS inbox driver instead.

I have a PCIe NVME SSD as the boot drive installed, along with a standard HD in the other bay. My concern is that I running the same 15.0.2.1044, but lenovo decided to place the warning in the readme only when it re-issued the driver.

Should I overwrite this driver with the MS inbox driver? Or should I continue to use it? SSD performance isn't the greatest when I compare my ATTO, AS SSD and Crystalmark results to the benchmarks for the SM951 256GB.

Re: Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver 15.0.2.1044

I've been using the Intel driver, both the current and previous versions, on my P70 with RAID 1. I don't believe that the MS inbox driver supports RAID so I assume that the Intel driver is required. I've experienced no issues for more than  8 months with this driver with the SM951 NVMe-PCIe SSDs in a RAID 1 array.


P70 XEON 1505, BIOS 2.30, UHD 4k Display, 64GB non-ECC RAM, M3000M NVIDIA GPU, RAID 1 512GB Samsung 951 PCIe-NVMe SSD x 2, 2x Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD. EM7455 WWAN
P1. BIOS 1.22,Xeon Processor, 32GB, PM981 1TB x 2, RAID 1
T470s, 16GB RAM, BIOS 1.10, i7-7500, WQHD display, 512GB PM961 PCIe NVMe SSD

I am using the NON RAID version on a raidless system. The links were also for the non raid version of the driver.
