More about raid trim confirmed
  1. Good to know that it's finally here. There was never any technical reason why it wasn't possible, just a matter of getting the software in order
  2. Nice find, johnny.

    One Killer for Me is, Don't plan on upgrading my MB (Z68) anytime soon and Not a lover of win 8.
    But then don't have a pressing need for Raid0 using SSDs, Have them but just using them as two drives - One for OS + Programs and the 2nd drive as a "Work/Temp" drive.
  3. Just published today:

    "Intel adds TRIM capability to SSD RAID to 7-series Motherboards – We test it!"

  4. Uh.

    I've had this in my Z79 system since I built it... I'm running two SSDs in RAID 0.

    This was in the news awhile back.

    More articles about the new feature are starting to appear.

    The ATA TRIM command apparently only works with some configurations.

    super-smashman - Have you confirmed or verified that the TRIM command actually works?

    Having SSDs in RAID-0 prevents TRIM from running... until now. Controller-level garbage collection will still work but this is independent of TRIM.
  7. Pinhedd - I did a little research. Intel released a download on July 25th but took their time issuing a press release.

    Yeah I remember reading about it a couple of weeks ago, supposedly it's been in beta for a long time. I wasn't aware that an RC had made its way out until now

    It may not work on x79 though since it uses RSTe rather than RST
