I found this and think it's a good one to share with ya.

TRIM with AMD & Marvell AHCI drivers! - BeHardware

Quote from BEHARDWARE.COM (HARDWARE.FR for the french version)

So where are we with TRIM support in these drivers? Well, it works! We were able to check them out both with Indilinx and SandForce SSDs, whether using the SSD then checking if the original performance levels are restored after quick formating, or simply by checking to see if the data of a deleted file has also disappeared by analysing the content of the SSD directly using WinHEX.
Just check those new drivers (whichever you need)...

- The Marvell AHCI dated 22/11/2010
- The AMD AHCI dated 11/11/2010

My System Specs


Any indication as to which hardware they tested on? I heard AMD trim was only supported on the 8xx chipsets.

Looking at the dates on those drivers, I would think it is those only supported by the 800 chipset, but I could be wrong.

When I saw the title I was hoping this was AMD TRIM support for 700 series chipsets. If that turns out to be the case, could someone please write back here?
