    X25-M 120 GB

    drmsucks

      Just installed the X25-M in my wife's ASUS UL10 with Win 7 64 bit. Works wonderfully!

       

      The driver is: ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller dated 6/19/09 v 8.9.0.1023.  Does this driver enable the TRIM command to work?

       

      I know that there is a more recent driver (v 9.6.0.1014, dtd 3/23/10). Does this driver enable the TRIM command? Do I need to update?

       

      Thanks!

          I do not believe TRIM is supported by that driver.  I am trying to find a changelog to be sure but Windows 7 with TRIM was released after that date.

           

          Regardless, it is recommended that you keep your drivers up-to-date.

            yes, you'll need to update to at least 9.6.0.1014 for windows 7 native trim to work.

              Thank you both!

               

              By implication in your post, mistermokkori, there is a newer driver than 1014. Please advise the driver that you would recommend. Thanks!

                  @duckie - Thanks!

                   

                  Installed 10.1.0.1008 and works like a charm. CrystalDiskMark tests with 8.9.0.1023 (before) and 10.1.0.1008 (after) show almost identical scores so, no harm done, at least! And, now (presumably) TRIM will work.

                   

                  Thanks for the help!
