Intel Smart Response Technology is available on Ultrabook, all-in-one, and standard PCs powered by the 3rd generation Intel Core processor family.Your Board:
Thanks Gael for all your help. I followed the leads you gave me and concluded the following (for others inquiring about the same thing.)
For anyone trying to implement Smart Response on a vPro system, the status as of June 5, 2012 is:
1. As of now, it is not available.
2.It will require
(i) a 3rd generation i5 or i7 (just launched, should be available at distributors in ~1 month)
(ii) a Q75 or Q77 chipset (expect launch in next 3 months). I had to read between the lines, but
I'm pretty sure on that
(iii) a Q75 or Q77 motherboard. Intel has not launched theirs. ASUS has not announced yet.
Gigabyte has announced theirs, and their specs clearly state that vPro and Smart Response
are both supported. I can't find any of the Gigabyte boards in stock or listed at my distributor,
and I expect thatthey won't release the boards until Intel officially launches the chipsets
My assumptions about the Q7x functionality are based on the Gigabyte board specs.
In summary, it's not available now, but probably will be by early fall.
