    Do/will the upcoming Intel RST drivers support Trim?


      @ Intel support:


      It is a fact, that the Intel Matrix Storage Manager AHCI and RAID drivers do not support Trim.

      So users with an Intel chipset mainboard and 1 or more Intel X25-M G2 SSD's, who had successfully flashed the Trim Firmware and now want to get benefit of the automatic Trim action while working, have to use the Win7 in-box generic MS IDE or MS AHCI drivers.


      Since several weeks there are new and already WHQL certified Intel AHCI/RAID drivers v9.5.0.1037 available at Station-Drivers. They belong to the upcoming new generation of Intel storage devices support named "Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology" (RST).


      Here are my questions:

      1. Do these new RST drivers v9.5.0.1037 already pass the Trim command?

      2. If not, will the upcoming official release of Intels RST drivers support Trim?

      3. If not, when can we expect Intel AHCI and RAID drivers, which do fully pass the Trim command?


      I did already ask similar questions within another thread, but I didn't yet get an answer. That is why I started a new thread.


      Thanks in advance!
