Could you guys test the new firmware and its trim behaviour ?

Sandforce was always known to lose write performance when lots of uncompressible was writen to them. I wonder if this firmware fixes this.

New fw will not help incompressible writes…that’s just the was SF works unless it’s running slc nand. Anyone know if this is a new rel from LSI that we’ll see coming from other makers as well?

I have the ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ,the boot times and the time it takes to shutdown are very slow compared to my old vertex 3 SSD.

I might seek reasoning if i were you as boot and shutdown will not show significant differences from one SSD to another.
