Chipzilla said that the PCN was prematurely posted while the decision was under evaluation.
"After discussing with the ecosystem and customers we realize there is significant demand for this product and intend to continue to support it,” an Intel spokesperson told Tom's Hardware.
VROC functionality is activated via different types of physical RAID keys that plug into the motherboard, each enabling a different level of RAID support.
The keys cost between $100 for basic functionality to $250 for the full-featured model. Intel also offered these keys for consumer systems but it does not seem that many were interested.
Intel originally posted 23 January as the last orders day for the products and added that all support for VROC (Virtual Raid on CPU) software will be discontinued.
Now it looks like that is not happening and all is well with the world. However, it was a possibility. CEO Pat Gelsinger's shift to focusing on the company's logic chips has seen the company stepping away from several of its 'adjacencies,' like its storage business.
