I remember that Intel Rapid Storage driver version 18.104.22.1689 was the latest version on Intel's website. When visiting that version's page found here:
...it says that it's removed and a yellow bar states that there is a newer version. However, when clicking on that yellow bar, it redirects me to an older version which is 22.214.171.1245 from 2017.
When will the latest RST driver be back up again?
As I spotted it myself over the last weekend I doubt it's maintenance-driven - surely that should not take longer than few hours to get it sorted.
So, it would be nice to see Intel staff commenting on this appropriately.
Thanks for your responses and updates. Let me take these one by one:
- The driver is currently down for maintenance to enable installer changes
Why such newspeak? Instead of saying that old drivers were pulled back for some reason as new version is coming up soon?
- Modifying the driver to meet the new driver model is not a trivial task and certainly not something that will happen overnight.
Fair enough, however some kind of advance notification would pre-empt people's doubts and questions. And also there would be no need for this thread, surely?
- Intel released new RST driver 126.96.36.1990
And yet, when one searches for RST one get this result, pointing out to v15.9 in the first place:
What's more, when expanded, no link to v16.8 exists. Interesting.
