ASUS ROG G750JZ impossible to set up Smart Response Technology


Hi all,

i'm currently at the point on which i have no idea what else i can try. Here goes:


Asus ROG G750JZ

HDD: HGST HTS721075A9E630

SSD: Samsung EVO 850 500 GB

OS: Win 10 Home 64 bit


CHIPSET: Intel 8 series/C220 Series SMBus Controller (according to the assus specs on the website this should be the Intel® HM87 Express Chipset)

I've done a clean install on the HDD with EFI/GPT enabled. I've tried it with and without the SDD connected to the controller during installation of the OS and i've also tried creating some empty space on the HDD drive so there is unallocated space.

as far as i can see there are no other intel RST options in the EUFI than creating a raid volume. When enabeling the compatibility mode on startup i can access the intel RST menu but i can only select to create a raid volume or exit. My EUFI sata mode is set to raid prior to installing the OS.

What do i miss?

Kind regards,

Hi KennyGeens,

The Smart Response Technology depends on system manufacturer specifications. Intel provides with the option on the chipset; however, the manufacturer decides if SMART response is active or not in your laptop.

According to Asus website SMART response is not available in your laptop. https://www.asus.com/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ASUS_ROG_G750JZ/specifications/ https://www.asus.com/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ASUS_ROG_G750JZ/specifications/
