    News - Intel brings TRIM support to 34nm SSDs, again

    Intel's latest SSD Firmware Update Tool restores TRIM functionality, and shouldn't brick your drive.

    Re: News - Intel brings TRIM support to 34nm SSDs, again

    I bought one of those 80Gb X18-M drive from Expansys. I'm guessing it wasn't a 34nm version as it was black, does this firmware only work with the 34nm versions, does my drive support TRIM?

    I will try this shortly (X25-M 34nm)

    Just going to run a 'before' benchmark to test for the sequential write.

    This firmware update tool provides the latest firmware for the following Intel SSDs in all capacities:
    - Intel® X25-M/X18-M SATA SSD on 50nm (black case) - updates to FW version 8820
    - Intel® X25-E SATA SSD on 50nm (black case) - updates to FW version 8850
    - Intel® X25-M/X18-M SATA SSD on 34nm (silver case) - updates to FW version 02HD
    So, the firmware update tool will work on your drive, but I don't think there'll be any TRIM support, yet.

    Re: News - Intel brings TRIM support to 34nm SSDs, again

    Work 1st time for me with no fuss ! No issues on the Intel support Forums yet (finger crossed)...

    I Wiped My drive with HDDErase and flash on a clean drive...Don't know if its just me but it does seem to be quicker, could be because I partition the drive down to 70gb before Win 7 install...All good so far !

    Will probably do this at the weekend on mine (X25-M 160Gb 34nm). Hopefully any potential issues like last time would have been highlighted by then!

    Andi-C, why did you wipe it first? Is this necessary?

    I doubt it would really make a different to the SSD with the modern block juggling techniques employed.

    No is not necessary, my drives performance dropped & I just wanted to get the drive back to is full Read & write / Factory state...

    Yes. There was a thread about it on the Intel SSD forum...

    Intel powerpoint link within the thread...

    "Intel says that you can increase endurance of the X25-M by 3.5X by lowering its capacity slightly".

    Seq - 257.9/75.9
    Rand
    512k - 201.3/53.75
    4k - 21.17/32.69

    After + Optimizer run

    Read/Write
    Seq - 255.8/108.3
    Rand
    512k - 200.5/108.2
