Windows 7: Intel adds TRIM support to its SSDs, releases SSD Optim

26 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Could have been a bug in the 160 FW that slowed write performance compared to the 80...

It's a little annoying that this only applies to the 34nm though.

I'm happy enough with my gen 1 but why are we not allowed TRIM?

I would think the underlying components of the Gen 2 80GB and the 160GB are the same. Both were originally rated at the same sequential write performance, but now the firmware has boosted the sequential write performance on the 160GB. Maybe it has something to do with the individual memory chips themselves since the 160GB has larger chips.

With regards to the Gen does stink that Intel won't be supporting TRIM on these devices. Fortunately, the Intel drive doesn't suffer much anyway from this problem and the true nerds among us will simply performance a secure erase every so often to ensure maximum performance from our drive.

If I read that correctly, we don't need the tool box with win 7 since it already has trim support?

Just do the firmware update?

EDIT: Never a little further, the tool box is for win 7 also.

Just update firmware and ran the tool. The recommend running it daily.

Yeah, that has me a little concerned. Although I applied the firmware yesterday and things seem to be alright for my setup. I've rebooted numerous times and again today just to make sure.

Keeping a very close eye on this issue.

Intel has replicated the issue and acknowledge that getting a fix is a top priority..however no timeline has been given.

Intel replicates 'bricked SSD' bug, pledges fix ? Register Hardware

Intel SSDs - Configured for Intel CPUs or Excellent with AMDs too?
Hi all Yes, that's about it really... Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel. So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too? I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).
