Gen 2, yes. It has TRIM enabled firmware for a loooong while now. :)

But remember the SSD is only one link in the chain. Any link missing == no TRIM. OS, drivers, controller, ssd. ALL four need to be working to get TRIM. I dont know your specs so I cant say 100%...but most likely..yes.
Oh and that windows command prompt. It is almost entirely useless. All it tells you is if the OS itself is sending the commands (ie the first link in the chain). You can be in IDE mode and it still will happily send the TRIM command. It wont go anywhere but the OS will be happy as it has done its part. ;)
