You can use certain features in the Intel toolbox for any SSD or HDD, such as S.M.A.R.T. data, but most of the features are reserved for Intel SSDs only (see screenshot below).
This the same as the Windows version of the OCZ SSD toolbox, for OCZ drives. Most features are reserved for OCZ SSDs.
OCZ however have a very nice Linux SSD toolbox, which runs from a live distro on a USB stick or CD-R.
This will do everything except flash a new firmware to any SSD other than OCZ Sandforce based SSDs.
