Just want to verify some things.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I am about to put my SSD into my ASUS N53JQ-A1 laptop and I want to verify that everything is going to work smoothly. Paranoid since I bought this SSD without knowing that AMD+SSD doesn't really work since the AHCI drivers don't support TRIM.

So it seems that the main thing I need is the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers. They say this. . .

Quote:
It also provides AHCI support on select Intel® 5 Series, 4 Series, 3 Series, 965, 975X, 955X, 945, 925 and 915 chipset-based platforms, as well as on Mobile Intel® 915/910 chipset-based platforms.
Now the "select" part had me paranoid and I verified through device manager that I have a 5 series. Now I just want to verify that since the download page for my laptop on Asus' website has a download for the Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers, that my laptop will work perfectly fine with an SSD.

Just want to make absolutely sure that I am going to have TRIM and all the bells and whistles before I put the SSD in the laptop.

I had to find out the same way too. AMD ACHI does not support TRIM.

EDIT:Well doing some googling, apparently they might have slipped it in the catalyst 10.9 drivers??

Well I find just as many threads saying 10.9 has TRIM as I find threads saying 10.9 causes all sorts of stuttering. Plus the download link was apparently removed because of this.

Makes me think some beta TRIM support was accidentally released in 10.9.

No one can verify that I am good to go? Or is everyone else freaking out about their TRIM support?
