I don't know of any official word yet from any drive manufacturer regarding TRIM support due to the fact that only the beta of Windows 7 supports it so far. And, the standard is not finalized by Microsoft so the controller firmwares cannot guarantee official support yet.

Stay tuned as this should be resolved by the Windows 7 release.

Yes I agree it would be hard to comment on Beta software.

I would suggest keeping it to your self as it would be against Microsoft's NDA to talk about it.

Right, people can claim TRIM support now. The fact still stands that the standard is not finalized. There are possible TRIM related changes to hardware that cannot be made via firmware updates. So, a drive that claims TRIM support now cannot guarantee support once the standard is finalized.

It's like 802.11N. It's still in the draft phase, and not finalized, but everyone claims they support it.

Looks like Win 7 RC already supports trim:

Since the current version of WM7 is not a final release and the only OS to support TRIM, the current firmware for the P256 does not support TRIM. We do have beta versions of the firmware that support TRIM and are currently working on it. This would most likely be a simple firmware upgrade in the future for existing drives P256 drives.

Windows 7 RC is an OS build that's intended to be released by Microsoft; which Microsoft already makes available to many people. One of them being me. I'd like to find out how I can test the release candidate firmware Samsung/Corsair intends to use for Windows 7. Surely, at this point, Corsair must have something solid ready by now. Not having something solid and ready at this point would suggest running behind it's major competitor (at least that's how it appears to me).

There is no firmware or update available to the public at this time. Keep in mind that the current RC-1 for WIN7 is just that, a candidate. Microsoft can change any part of it at any time. Therefore, the firmwares that Samsung has developed are not released yet. They will be when WIN7 and the TRIM standards are finalized.

Default Corsair SSD Performance Shines!

For those of you still wondering about TRIM, it's not an easy solution and it's far from a finished standard. Be wary of any claims relating to TRIM support at this stage.

From a 3 way SSD shootout:

Quote:
Windows 7 promises native support for the TRIM command, but the OS hasn't been finalized, and Indilinx's home-brewed utility doesn't look like a reliable solution for those running other operating systems.
