so my understanding of non-trim drives (please correct me if im wrong) is that over time, they slow down. Trim is supposed to fix this right?

Compared to Intel, what else is out there?

Correct. They fill up and the drive must do much more work for simple writes.

Other than TRIM, there really is nothing that will help. That is the whole point of TRIM. If the drive does not support TRIM, the only way to truly restore lost performance is an entire format of the drive.

Now most controllers do "wear leveling" but that is not for performance, but longevity.

im going out on a limb assuming that Intel has patented Trim. what are other companies doing? when will they have their own versions of trim released?

No, trim is just a function that was integrated to newer SSD controllers, it is offered currently by OCZ in some of their indillinx drives I believe.

Hoping I don't steal your topic, but how often are you supposed to run Trim? Like if I used my SSD as a boot drive, should I run it every bootup, or what?
