X25-M Firmware

Hey everyone.....my first post! ( round of applause please ) :-)

Right, Intel promised us a re-release of the Firmware Update (& SSD Toolbox) by the end of this month, how likely will this be considering we only have 6 days left? When I got my X25-M G2, the Windows Experience Index in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit gave it a 7.8...........BUT, I had to do a reformat and reinstall due to some issues with SQL, and now it only scores a 7.6. Is this normal? And will the new TRIM functionality get it back to original score? Im guessing the reformat didn't necessarily wipe all blocks and thats what causing the slight score downgrade? The drive is still obtaining 240-250mb/s though.

Thanks guys!

I called Intel support yesterday regarding my gen1 x18 drive, he mentioned that they will have the new firmware uploaded to the site by the end of this month. So it sounds like we only have a few more days of waiting! =)

Why didn't you just wait until the end of the month? Theres virtually a whole week left.

Cos' If you read the question properly, you will see that I was merely asking on the likelyhood of Intel delivering the update as stated!

I have a feeling its gonna be released on a 30th. For one thing it's a holiday in two days, then black friday, so basically a no go on thursday and friday. It's probably gonna get released on monday. I could be wrong, but the last firmware was released on a Monday.

Cos I wanted to know! The same reason you ask a question! If Intel will release the new F/W soon, then ill continue using the SSD as TRIM will be available soon to keep it healthy.....but if its gonna be a while, ill hold off on the Intel & use my Samsung SSD or WD Velociraptor instead.

You donut.

You're the donut.

Intel have 'announced' that they will release a new firmware and toolbox 'by the end of the month' - there is your answer.

Intel updates in the Intel support forum don't happen very often

considering that there's only 2.5 working days left in this month... it's not a very good answer
