Intel RST SATA Driver control center is end of life

Intel is being forced to comply with MS policy on Windows 10 driver packages.
RST drivers are important if you have a recent Intel chipset motherboard and SATA SSD’s.
They by far give the best performance. The drivers themselves will still be available via Intels download center.
The control center application will be removed from the next version of the drivers.
Fear not. Providing you have the latest drivers, you can download the control center via the MS Windows 10 store…

The app is now called Intel Optane Memory and Storage Management
Control Center is a must if you have an RST RAID array, but even single SATA SSD can get a performance boost from disabling SATA Link Power Management.
