    I wonder how long before Indilinx do something similar.
    Not that I'd use RAID anyway.

    So it'll work on non Intel SSD's? That is good news. For some reason I was thinking firmware rather than driver.

    lol (use google) Indilinx is whats used in OCZ vertex and Crucial M225 SSDs (and some other random makes, but best to stick with SSDs that are on the partner lists and them two are so they get updates first)

    Finally SSD's balls have dropped, once this is native across the board along with SATA-3 or a more suitable interconnect we might be able to call them mature.

    Well that answers that question. I've been wondering all this time what happends to SSD's in RAID 0 like I have. Now I'll be able to have TRIM.

    I like TRIM ;-)

    I've been using this in Vertex RAID 0 array. Been working smoothly over the last few days and by the look of my benchies the Trim is doing its job.

    Sadly the news is not correct.

    This is from Intel

    So it only works with a single SSD in AHCI or RAID mode.

    Yep if the SSD's are in RAID it won't pass the TRIM command to them.

    why would someone run 2 ssd's in Raid 1 anyways? I feel like the reliability is so high that you would run raid 0 if you were gonna raid them.

    One of my friends has 3x Intel X-25M 160GB SSDs in RAID 0 on an Areca RAID controller, and I remember him telling me Areca were supposed to release a TRIM RAID driver about 3 months ago, will have to ask him if they did as this would then be old news :p

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    The TRIM command specification is being standardized as part of the ATA interface standard.
    OS use the build-in ATA command device driver to communicate the ATA port for TRIM command. But most of the RAID adapter emulate the

    SCSI command to support more volumes on one RAID adapter, including our RAID cards. this command different result the TRIM command can not support on all vendors of RAID adapters.


    Best Regards,
