The "accelerate" tab is missing in Intel Rapid Storage. I did some I have a Pentium G and an Asrock Z97M Anniversary motherboard. Introduction. The ASRock Z97 Anniversary is an inexpensive socket LGA motherboard based on the Intel Z97 chipset, supporting the. Today I take a look at RAID, and show you how to set it up on Intel Motherboards using the Intel Rapid.

This would mean more CPU cycles and penalties when trying to access contents stored in a core's cache that's required in a different execution core. A shared cache structure would have made sharing memory across execution cores a lot speedier.


Its supported instruction set is limited in comparison to the current 4th generation Intel Core processors. Pentium G Processor Compared.

The new Pentium processor was announced in early June this year, and it is meant to commemorate the 20th anniversary its predecessor, the original Intel Pentium from According to the company, the board has a 4-phase digital power delivery system. In terms of appearance, the board has a no-nonsense look, with its blue and ASRock Z97M Anniversary Intel RST color scheme.

Speaking of black, the board has a "sapphire black" PCB that is supposed to convey its "rock-solid" build quality - according to the marketing material.

The minimalist nature doesn't come as a surprise for a board that's designed to be mated with a budget class CPU. There is only a single PCIe Gen 3.

ASRock Introduces the Z97 Anniversary and Z97M Anniversary Motherboards TechPowerUp

If you were looking forward to building a multi-GPU system with an affordable Z97 board, you will be sorely disappointed. The selection of headers and connectors that line the bottom of the board are also as sparse as its expansion slots.


This task is becoming increasingly difficult as Intel and AMD integrate more and more technology into the processor itself, leaving board designers little room ASRock Z97M Anniversary Intel RST innovation. We have shown that inexpensive Intel Z97 boards perform as well as dearer ones even when the CPU is overclocked by a healthy degree. ASRock, meanwhile, is looking to use the positive commotion surrounding the Pentium Anniversary Edition chip - unlocked from the factory - to focus attention on a particular board in the Z97 line-up.

It's of no surprise that it's called the Z97 Anniversary, coinciding with the processor, and it's available in standard ATX and micro-ATX form factors.

We have the ATX model in for review today. Note that at 19cm it is 5cm narrower than the standard form factor.

Cutting down on space makes sense because of the integration present in the chipset and reduced cost associated with a smaller PCB. Don't let the Anniversary name fool you, as this is a Z97 chipset board first and foremost.

This means it can be home to every LGA processor under the sun, not just the Anniversary edition. Layout is nice and simple, helped by eschewing a bunch of add-on features that aren't much use for most folk looking to construct a mid-priced build. The rather large, chunky heatisnk covering the 4-phase power regulation components is wedged right up next to the rear IO ports.

A knock-on effect of such an approach is the relocation of the 8-pin power connector to the centre of the left-hand edge.
