Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Corsair ha reso noto di aver rilasciato un aggiornamento del firmware a corredo dei suoi SSD della gamma Performance, che include le varianti P64, P128 e P256, finalizzato alla abilitazione del supporto del comando TRIM, che Ŕ al momento fornito dal solo Sistema Operativo Windows 7 in ambiente Windows.
La revisione del nuovo firmware Ŕ la VBM19C1Q: sia questo software che il tool per l'aggiornamento sono stati sviluppati da Samsung e sono giunti alla pubblicazione a valle di una accurata fase di test su svariate tipologie di configurazioni hardware.

FREMONT, California, December 21, 2009 - Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer and flash memory products, today announced that it has released firmware with TRIM support and a firmware update tool for its award-winning Performance Series P64, P128 and P256 solid-state drives.
The firmware (revision VBM19C1Q) and update tool were both developed by Samsung, and have been rigorously qualified by both Samsung and Corsair using a large number of test platforms, in conjunction with a controlled end-user BETA test of the new firmware.
"This new firmware release for Corsair's Performance Series SSDs adds support for the TRIM performance-maintenance command in Microsoft Windows 7, further enhancing what are already some of the fastest and most respected SSDs on the market," said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing for Corsair. "While other SSD manufacturers have rushed out bug-ridden firmware and update tools, sometimes with disastrous consequences for end-users, Corsair refused to jump on the bandwagon. We took the time to rigorously test and quality our tools, ensuring that our users will have the best experience possible."
The new firmware and firmware update tool are available immediately from Corsair's Product Forum. The new firmware has been specifically designed to add support for the TRIM command in Windows 7, which enables the operating system to progressively 'clean' previously deleted or 'invalid' data from the drive's memory cells, automatically maintaining optimal performance over time. In addition to the end-user firmware update tool for existing owners, all new Corsair Performance Series solid-state drives currently have firmware VBM19C1Q pre-loaded by default.
