Adding images to the Windows Photo Gallery is not a very relevant test, as we’re talking about large size files that can all be handled at high performance. Clearly, smaller files are more challenging to write to SSDs.
The new firmware improves the Windows Vista startup performance, but just a bit.
Overall, the new firmware has quite a nice impact on PCMark Vantage, with or without the TRIM feature.
