Kingston Adds TRIM Support

Kingston Adds TRIM Support

Kingston have announced new SSD products offering higher performance and more features. The second generation SSDNow “V” Value range adds TRIM support.

TRIM support allows the devices to maintain their speed over the lifetime of the drive by working with the OS to tell the device which cells have no data on them and can be reused. TRIM support is only available in Windows 7 at this time:

Microsoft and SSD manufacturers are adopting the Trim operation. In Windows 7, if an SSD reports it supports the Trim attribute of the ATA protocol’s Data Set Management command, the NTFS file system will request the ATA driver to issue the new operation to the device when files are deleted and it is safe to erase the SSD pages backing the files. With this information, an SSD can plan to erase the relevant blocks opportunistically (and lazily) in the hope that subsequent writes will not require a blocking erase operation since erased pages are available for reuse.
