SSD Cache on Gigabyte Z68 MOB; Why not on Intel DX58SO2?

A friend has a 120Gb SSD configured as a cache with his Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 MOB. Given the 64Gb limit, the SSD is partitioned into two volumes.

 

The data in the "Rapid Storage Technology - Option ROM" BIOS is:

Vol 0 Raid0 (Stripe) 128K 47.8Gb Bootable

Vol 1 Raid0 (cache) 128K 64.0Gb not bootable (with one HDD is listed as the accelerated volume benefitting from this cache.)

I have the same 120Gb SSD installed with my Intel DX58SO2 MOB. Try as I might, even upgrading my BIOS to the latest version, my "Rapid Storage Technology - Option ROM" BIOS will not let me configure my SSD as a cache. Is it not possible with the X58 chipset?

Pretty sure its only on that chipset - though I think that is done through software. Intel chose to release that software only for that chipset - If memory serves.

The X58 chipset will not do SSD cashing it's built into the chipset and X58 does not have it .
