SSD RAID support from Intel
.......*RAID: Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver for Intel Desktop Boards

I don't get the point of this thread. These are just the standard Rapid Storage drivers.

I was kinda wondering myself.... I was under the impression that it wasn't raid + SSD that was the problem, but instead was no trim support for RAIDed SSDs (Apparently you can have raided HDDs with trim still enabled on an non-raided SSD with the intel drivers).

I believe he is talking about this, from March:

I remember when I was excited about trim and Raid, but it was all for not.

ya these are just the 9.6 intel storage drivers they do not support raid trim at all there is no raid trim and from what i have read there no plan for them

Id have to do much more digging then I'm willing to on a Saturday night (with beers and Scotch in my body) to back this up with hard fact, but my recollection is that it isnt possible with ICH10 chipsets to TRIM with RAID setups regardless of drivers, and this wont be fixed until ICH11 southbridge comes out sometime later this (or early next) year.

yah, i thought it was more than i thought it was. as i myself got a couple Intel SSD`s in zero stripe.

looks like this allows you to use TRIM on an SSD thats on a RAID controller, presumably with an array behind it? and, only on an Intel board(see the list). had me going there though.

so, i'm still waiting i suppose.

NP it was tricky for a lot of folks, and a lot of us got excited over that one.

oh hell ya just read the other thread i thought the same thing when they first came out bu all it is is when runningna storage raaid you can still send the trim cmd to an ssd on the raid controller. what it does not mean it that ssd in raid can't not be sent any trim info well config in an ssd raid setup.
