Intel just released the new Intel Rapid Storage 188.8.131.524 WHQL and I read that they support TRIM, can someone confirm?
Wow, where did you read that?
Just reading into it - it would seem that these have been released 'under the radar' but only for "Desktop Boards" atm - can't confirm as I am running on a X58 Server...
CMON INTEL RAID TRIM SUPPORT!
anyone else not able to reach inteldownload at the moment? just keeps timing out but the rest of the site is fine...
anyone know if these drivers are supported on a Desktop P45?
First, please excuse my poor english.
My answer to your question is ABSOLUTELY YES, the automatic TRIM feature works perfectly with the new RST version !!!! And even better than the standard msahci !!!
I fully tested it and it works:
1/ Within a ACHI SATA configuration
2/ Within a AHCI SATA / RAID configuration BUT !!!!!!!!! with NON-RAID DRIVES. In a such configuration the performances of all the devices are even better (thanks to raid). So I strongly recommend to everyone to switch to Ahci Sata/Raid configuration (with or whitout Raid volumes).
In fact I did not test a SSD RAID volume(s) configuration (i mean two or more drives in the same RAID volume), simply because I have only one SSD !!
To correctly intall all the fonctionnalities just follow strictly the Intel recommandations ( I mean do not trust any garbage advises such modifying registry or others stuffs). Just read accurately the Intel README file.
Be carefull to download the right Intel drivel which is RST (and not anymore Matrix).
I hope it will help everyone.
Yes. Better than correct. You are on the hardware limits off SSD performances.
The Intel RST 9.6.0 driver does support TRIM in Pass-Through mode, but not to a RAID volume.
