    Window 7 64bit + Turbo Memory + SSD

      Hi,

       

      I am using a Window 7 + 4G Trubo Memory in my Laptop. However, I recently replace the hardisk by a new 160 GB G2  SSD with latest firmware.

      Regarding the use of Trim, I read the "Intel Solid-State Drive Optimizer"

      http://download.intel.com/support/ssdc/hpssd/sb/intel_ssd_optimizer_white_paper_rev_2.pdf

       

      It tells about:

      Operating SystemStorage DriverExecution Environment
      Microsoft Windows* 7Microsoft* AHCINative OS trim support enabled
      (Intel® SSD Optimizer not required)
      Microsoft Windows 7Intel® Matrix Storage Manager**Intel® SSD Optimizer required
      Microsoft Windows
      Vista* or
      Microsoft AHCI or Intel® Matrix Storage ManagerIntel® SSD Optimizer required

       

      Any now..I want to ask:

      1. Is it worth to use Turbo Memory in an SDD Laptop?

      2. If no, I shall uninstall the turbo memory, drivers and IMSM. Then how do I know native Trim is still working properly?

      3. If yes, since I have both AHCI and IMSM installed....is it still necessary to install Intel® SSD Optimizer?

       

      Regards,
      Warren
