    • Model number, capacity, and firmware version
    • Drive health
    • Estimated drive life remaining
    • SMART attributes (also available for hard disk drives and non-Intel SSDs)
    • IDENTIFY DEVICE information (also available for hard disk drives and non-Intel SSDs)
  • Optimize the performance of an Intel SSD using Trim functionality
  • Optimize the performance of an Intel SSD in RAID 0 using Trim functionality Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) 11.0 or greater. Note: Trim on RAID 0 is not supported on Windows 8* or Windows Server 2012
  • Obtain proactive notifications of new Intel SSD Toolbox software versions for Windows 7 and Windows 8 systems
  • Update the firmware on a supported Intel SSD
  • Run quick and full diagnostic scans to test the read and write functionality of an Intel SSD
  • Check and tune your system settings for optimal Intel SSD performance, power efficiency, and endurance
  • View your system information and hardware configuration, such as central processing unit (CPU), chipset, controller name, and driver versions
  • Run Secure Erase on a secondary Intel SSD

Installation Instructions:

  1. Copy the file TurboBoostSetup.exe to your system.
  2. Double click on TurboBoostSetup.exe. Accept the UAC prompt, if one appears.
  3. Follow the installer prompt instructions to complete installation.
  4. If installing on the Windows Vista operating system, double click the ‘Intel® Turbo Boost Technology Monitor’ gadget in the gadget gallery that pops up to install the gadget to the Windows Sidebar. This is automatically done on Windows 7

What’s New:

This version of the tool contains a firmware update for the Intel SSD 530 Series (to version DC32) with the following changes:

  • Default Software Settings Preservation (SSP) for DIPM is changed from a default = on, to a DEFAULT = OFF. This addresses situations in older systems where the drive was not found after a warm reset causing blue screens.
  • Corrects an occasional miss-reporting of SMART attribute E3h (Timed Workload Read/Write ratio).
  • The drive no longer increments SMART 0Ch (Power Cycle Count) after a SECURE ERASE operation.
