Various tech sites such as Anandtech have an article up about the fact that with the newest RST software that Raid 0 and trim is supported.
Is this available for X79? The X79 of course uses RSTe which has a different version number to the normal RST and the articles do not mention anything about X79 at all

Looks like those who shelled out the major cash and purchased the new "enthusiast" platform are getting screwed out of a needed feature. I dropped a ton of cash on my lga 2011 board, 3930k processor and all the other goodies needed only to see people who spent $100's less on their processors get an enthusiast option on their chip sets. Good one Intel! Here some news, a lot of us who purchased these processors and chip sets want to run their ssd's in raid 0 and get trim support. How about you guys step up to the plate and support those who've supported you and helped to provide those huge profits that you've enjoyed.

it looks like it's not just drivers, it's the orom as well for the the 7 series chipsets. unless intel allow a magic (like the 7 series ones) orom for the 6 series, or someone hacks one, we are sol.

Slow down people, we do not know that TRIM in RAID 0 will not be coming to RSTe.
Consider the big picture. TRIM for RAID 0 volumes on PCs is significant to how many people? It will affect Intel's bottom line in what way?
Not many, and not at all.
In the Enterprise environment, where RAID is actually used for a reason that is important, and providing TRIM to SSDs in that realm will really benefit the customer and Intel, will it happen?
Seems obvious to me.

x79 is their enthusiast platform. Every enthusiast that I know has an ssd or two, like myself. Raid 0 trim is pretty important to me. Why would they enable a performance/enthusiast feature on their mainstream chipset before they do it for their enthusiast chipset? It's a slap in the face for those of us that laid out the cash to be on x79. I passed up ivory bridge, and in the process spent several hundred dollars more, for sandy bride e. Do a search on the net, this is a big deal to a lot of people.
