Updating sata drivers
Hi all, I noticed after a clean install of Win 10 Pro that in the Device Manager I had two "Standard SATA AHCI Controller" entries that showed the driver dated in 2006. So I downloaded the latest version of SATA drivers at the Asus ROG site for my motherboard.
Download and run directly onto the system you want to update For Linux® systems, Apple Boot Camp systems or other AMD graphics products such as AMD Fire Pro™ and Embedded graphics, please select your driver using the selection menus below.Under "Storage Controllers" i see three items: I have a feelings its the 61xx RAID Controller, but i have no idea if im right or wrong. Lastly, should i unplug my HDs from it when updating its driver? If you uninstall it, the updated SATA AHCI drivers will remain, at least this is what happened with my systems. So I downloaded the latest version of SATA drivers at the Asus ROG site for my motherboard.Also, one of my laptops have 2 HDD's so I used and Intel SATA Raid driver. After running, one entry in Device Manager has changed to "Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller" but the other remains "Standard SATA AHCI Controller" - still with the 2006 driver version 10.0.10240.16384 dated 2006/06/21 Is this correct?"Flashing" the BIOS is synonymous with updating the motherboard's BIOS to the latest version.

If a new driver is available, the tool is designed to help you download it.
Windows reports that it is the most current driver. I am wondering if it might conflict with Samsung's Magician which I also have installed? Hi Greg, don't worry , my SATA drivers are from 2006 as well , actually i have a ton of drivers showing 2006 and device manager does indeed say they are the latest and the best choice for the system lol.
ALSO: The driver installed "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" program. I have to admit , computer runs well and when i did update the SATA ACHI drivers to the latest from" Fernando's Win Raid "forums there was zero difference in performance.
