Corsair has released firmware with TRIM support and a firmware update tool for its Performance Series P64, P128, and P256 solid-state drives.
The firmware (revisionVBM19C1Q) and update tool were both developed by Samsung, and have been qualified by both Samsung and Corsair using a large number of test platforms in conjunction with a controlled end-user BETA test of the new firmware.
"This new firmware release for Corsair’s Performance Series SSDs adds support for the TRIM performance-maintenance command in Microsoft Windows 7, further enhancing what are already some of the fastest and most respected SSDs on the market," said Jim Carlton, vice president of Marketing for Corsair.
The new firmware and firmware update tool are available immediately from Corsair’s Product Forum. The new firmware has been specifically designed to add support for the TRIM command in Windows 7, which enables the operating system to progressively “clean” previously deleted or “invalid” data from the drive’s memory cells, automatically maintaining optimal performance over time. In addition to the end-user firmware update tool for existing owners, all new Corsair Performance Series solid-state drives currently have firmware VBM19C1Q pre-loaded by default.
