Marvell is one of the most popular controller makers in the SSD business. Its chips underpin drives from the likes of Intel, Crucial, and Corsair, and now there's a new one: the Marvell 88SS9187. This third-generation SSD controller supports revision 3.1 of the Serial ATA specification, which adds the ability to queue TRIM commands, purportedly improving performance.

Almost pulled the trigger on the samsung 830 256 for $300 the other day.

I see the tech game as these big corporations holding a deck, they want consumers to play a game with them..

They draw a hand, they have already stacked the deck mind you, and they play one card at a time on the consumers...

The consumers go, woe, wow, ooohhh, cool, awesome!

But you will notice it's always a slightly better card each time...

The truth is, at the bottom of the stack lays the mega-whopper cards....

Like Single Layer SSDs with the best controllers using LightPeak...

We aren't far from the apex of Computing, these corporate bastards are just playing the cards so slow it's annoying!

It's best to be patient, don't be in a rush to get the latest and greatest tech, just take what's affordable and meets your needs for now...

Soon friend soon!

That is down to the chipset makers (intel and AMD mostly) to support not the SSD controller makers.

Can't prove it one way or the other. It's barely even worth discussing.

garbage collection in modern SSDs has largely improved to the point where TRIM isn't that necessary unless you can never give your rig a break to let it work

although supposedly intel is close to offering TRIM to a RAID array through their controller and driver
