In this system:

Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Xtreme
RST driver version: 16.8.3.1003

I am asking this more as a generic question though as nothing I can see in the intel documentation mentions either way for RST/RSTe/VROC.

Hello @Lemming

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

We would like to update this thread and inform you that TRIM is only supported on RAID 0. Beginning with the Intel® 7 Series chipset the driver supports TRIM on SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration.


Best regards,
