I just got my Intel 510 120GB SSD today. It replaced a Corsair Force 3 drive that I have had nothing but trouble with (Sandforce controller).
I've searched Intel for the latest firmware for the drive, but can't find any info on where to download it. I don't know which firmware my 510 has now, it was packaged in august.
I can only find firmware for the 320 series, what gives?
In contrast to SandForce based SSDs, Intel has no need to update it's firmware constantly, or even occasionally, only rarely.
The latest firmware for the 510 is PPG4. AS SSD Benchmark displays the firmware in the upper left portion of it's screen. The Intel SSD Toolbox will show the firmware version in the View Drive Information option, scroll down a bit. The IRST interface in Windows will show the firmware version. Check the label on the box for PPG2 or PPG4.
