Intel x18m and x25m

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ive done some research and can't seem to find the answer im looking for.

1. Can I raid the x25m and and x18m together?
2. Does it matter if one is g1 and the other is g2?
3. Will there be a noticeable difference in daily use?
4. Should i update the firmware on my g1 x18m?
5. If i do update the firmware on the x18m, will that enable trim support?


Thanks for any and all help.

Yes.
No, performance of each is close enough and RAID loses TRIM anyways.
No, RAID boosts sequential performance. Random performance is more important for daily use.
Yes, keep firmware up dated
No TRIM support on G1 ever.
Once again...
