What is "Lake Tiny", exactly? (Z87)

Postposted on Wed Oct 16, 2013 12:24 pm

I was reading up on Haswell stuff when I ran into something I hadn't seen before - supposedly the Z87 supports something called "Lake Tiny" which is a "technology" consisting of SSD performance & power optimizations, possibly in conjuction with Intel SRT. Sounds interesting, but I have not been able to find any details on this *anywhere*. Google finds a grand total of 1(!) hit on Intel's site mentioning it, and it's in some driver release notes. Most/all other hits I have been getting have been copied from a press release which mentions it by name, but does not explain it. Did this pick up another name?

AFAIK it's just an enhancement to SRT for Z87-based chipsets. Supposedly it offers slightly better performance and slightly lower power usage.

Wading through countless vague mentions of it, I have a feeling it refers strictly to power optimizations. Intel didn't exactly waste much time on selling the feature to anyone. Who knows why it was restricted to the Z87 ...
