HardwareCanucks learned Intel will soon give its X79 chipset TRIM support for RAID:
To many it looked like Intel was ignoring enthusiasts with their latest RST driver which supports the TRIM command over RAID setups on their Z, P, H and Q chipsets. Conspicuous by its absence was X79 but after some digging, Hardware Canucks has found out some additional information.
Quote: Intel's Rapid Storage Technology (RST) 11.2 driver update was rolled out to the public but the initial positive response was somewhat tempered when enthusiasts realized their X79 systems weren’t supported. Only P67, Z68, Z77, H67, H77, Q67 and Q77 chipsets are currently listed as certified, which tends to leave some Intel’s highest paying clients (enthusiasts and power users) out in the cold so to speak. Amidst the outrage from understandably miffed enthusiasts, we reached out to Intel and asked about their plans for X79 users. Their response should put some customers at ease.
