1) Does it gives significant speed boost ??

2) Is it compulsory to have TRIM in SSD??

3) Will my SSD not slow down even when it's almost full?? since old/useless block are replaced by new data instantly instead of removing them first then writing data on those blocks

More about : trim

It's not the purpose of TRIM to give a speed boost. The purpose of TRIM is to maintain the drive's Read/Write performance.

Modern SSDs don't rely only on TRIM to maintain drive performance; they also use Garbage Collection to maintain performance. So no, TRIM is not compulsory.

Yes, most SSDs will slow down when they are more than 90 percent full.

You need a 7 series Intel chipset based motherboard in order to have TRIM activated in RAID-0.

You will get close to double your advertised Read/Write speeds in benchmarks tests, but real-world use you might not notice the difference between a single SSD and 2 SSDs in RAID-0.
