OCZ is stating that they are working with MS in order to have an update where TRIM will be completely enabled and, realistically, there is no reason foreseeable that this won't occur.
For those familiar with the Revo series, SandForce processors do a great deal to eliminate the need for TRIM for the most part. You can speak with many Revo and Revo x2 owners who are very happy with their drive and will be the first to state that their drives still run at full performance without TRIM.
SF works very well with ITGC (Garbage Collection) automatically through its firmware.
IMHO, the second these drives are released, they will be impossible to get simply because of the question I raised above with respect to enthusiasts and the significant performance bump for the extra $150. The key target for this specific drive is the enthusiast who, for the most part, invests heavily in his hobby.
Agreed I think there will still be high demand despite it being $700 which is still quite a bit for many enthusiasts. OCZ's reliability doesn't seem to have steered that many away from the vertex's either. Given the motherboard compatability issues of previous revo's though there may be a few like me who will wait to decide on a socket 2011 board before buying something that might be incompatible in a few months. That's if it isn't sold out for the next year lol.
BTW it seems you used a board with a pci-e bus expander chip, does this effect the performance at all?
