  1. Yeap, apparently there was an update for trim support with RAID 0, 1, and 10 (not 5).

    Now, this is really interesting news to me, as I want to buy a couple of SSDs for my new build, and put in RAID 0.

    Now, this update is apparently only for Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Reading around, I can't figure out of this would include the P55 chipset.

    Can anyone answer this?

    Any Intel I/O controller hub that supports RAID from ICH7R onwards (so from 945P chipset), including the P55 family (which has an integrated Platform Controller Hub).

    For any other thread viewers interested:
    Driver here http://downloadcenter.intel.com/detail_desc.aspx?agr=N&ProductID=&DwnldID=15251
    All drives in the array must of course support TRIM



    Definitely a step in the right direction !

    Thanks for the confirmation.


    I was just browsing the web yesterday thinking about installing RAID, and all I could find was "TRIM does not support RAID".

    And today.... UPDATE!!! WEEEeeEEeEeeeEEeeee!!!!
