 27.10.2009   Intel rilascia la Solid-State Drive Toolbox per gli SSD X25-M
 

Sull'onda della introduzione di Windows 7, Intel ha annunciato la disponibilità della Solid-State Drive (SSD) Toolbox, un pacchetto software che include l'applicazione Intel SSD Optimizer e un aggiornamento del firmware, indirizzato ai suoi drive a stato solido di fascia mainstream della linea X25-M. X25-M include SSD prodotti in tecnologia a 34nm con l'ausilio della tecnologia NAND multi-level cell (MLC), dotati di interfaccia SATA e disponibili con una capacità pari a 80GB oppure a 160GB.

In accordo al chip maker, il nuovo firmware fornisce un incremento notevole delle performance degli SSD, che raggiunge il 40% in termini di velocità di scrittura sequenziale, rispetto a quanto ottenibile con la precedente versione; un simile risultato è ottenibile configurando i drive non soltanto con Windows 7, ma anche con Windows XP e Vista.

E' invece una peculiarità riservata soltanto agli utenti di Windows 7 il supporto degli SSD X25-M - aggiornati con il firmware più recente - del comando TRIM (che è parte della più complessa gestione dell'interazione tra hardware di storage e software indicata da Microsoft come "ATA Data Set Management Command") di Windows 7 e mediante il quale il drive viene istruito per svuotare le celle non più utilizzate, in modo da allineare la vista dei file distrutti a livello di SO alla configurazione fisica e, in ultima analisi, al fine di stabilizzare le prestazioni e favorire la longevità dell'hardware.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 26, 2009 – On the heels of the Microsoft Windows 7 introduction, Intel Corporation today announced the availability of the Intel Solid-State Drive (SSD) Toolbox, with Intel SSD Optimizer and firmware update, for its 34nm Intel X25-M Mainstream SATA SSDs. The latest tools are designed to help better manage and retain the out-of-box performance of Intel SSDs. An SSD is built to replace a traditional hard disk drive (HDD) with added performance, lower power consumption and higher reliability. The Intel SSD Toolbox allows users to more effectively monitor and manage the SSD's health. The firmware upgrade and Intel SSD Optimizer use the Windows 7 ATA Data Set Management Command (known as Trim) to help keep the Intel SSD running at continued high performance. In addition, the SSD Toolbox and Optimizer also allow the respective enhancements to work with Windows XP and Vista operating systems. "Fast and reliable access to data is critical for our SSD users," said Pete Hazen, director of marketing, Intel NAND Solutions Group. "The latest firmware and toolbox upgrade for Intel 34nm SSD users provide a host of new management, information and diagnostic tools to help SSDs retain out-of-box performance. We are encouraging our 34nm customers to download the new firmware update today. Not only will Windows 7 users receive the performance enhancements of the Trim command, but so will our Windows XP and Vista users." For 34nm X25-M 160GB owners, the firmware update also offers a performance boost to sequential write speeds by delivering up to 100MB per second, a 40 percent performance improvement over the existing firmware version. The Trim attribute of the ATA Data Set Management Command, often referred to as Trim, synchs the operating system's view of deleted files with those that are deleted, but not erased on the drive. Trim tells the SSD which data blocks are no longer in use. This helps stabilize the performance and health of the SSD over time. The Intel SSD Toolbox provides SSD management tools and information about the drive, including comparing Self-Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) drive attributes to manufacturer threshold. It provides basic and full diagnostics, along with recommended actions. The Toolbox also features an easy-to-use graphical user interface that will allow end users to schedule and run the Trim command independent of the operating system. The company recommends users install the firmware update and toolbox, and run the Trim function daily to ensure best performance. The firmware upgrade can be found at www.intel.com/go/ssdfirmware and the Intel SSD Toolbox and Optimizer at www.intel.com/go/ssdtoolbox. Intel's award-winning X25-M SSD began shipping on 34nm in July. The multi-level cell (MLC) Intel X25-M Mainstream SATA SSD is aimed at laptop and desktop PCs, and available in 80 Gigabyte (GB) and 160GB versions. SSDs are data storage devices found inside computers. Because SSDs have no moving parts they offer faster performance and greater energy efficiency and durability than traditional HDDs. A draw for gamers, media creators and technology enthusiasts, SSDs have also played a key role in the emergence of ultra-thin and light notebook PCs that are becoming increasingly popular due to their design, size and longer battery life.
