    Hi guys,

    Have been running the Intel SSD ToolKit version 1.2.0.0 for a while, the SSD Optimizer, which will improve performance of the SSD, usually took about 10-20 minutes to complete.

    Last week i installed the Intel SDD Toolkit version 1.3.0.0 but noticed the SSD Optimizer now only takes a fraction of a second up to a few seconds to complete?

    Anyone noticed something similar?
    Can i assume the the SSD Optimizer has done it's work?

    I use the Intel SDD Toolkit version 1.3.0.0 and it takes about 10 sec to optimize.

    But have you ever used the older 1.2.0.0 version, and if so did this one take much longer too?

    Yes I have used the older version also, but and did not see a big difference in optimizing speed.

    The latest version offers TRIM support so the drive handles most of the deleting/optimizing now, not the Intel software. The Intel software sends the TRIM command to the SSD drive.

    I read somewhere this only works if you use the standard ACHI mode driver... With my BIOS (Crappy Acer System with NVidia Chipset) i can not change to ACHI mode, i only can use the Microsoft Standard ATA Controller... so i do not think it uses the automatic TRIM command
