Even with this update they still get destroyed by Crucial's M4 after TRIM in real world tests.

This article doesn't show the Octane but it is common knowledge that Sandforce based drives are faster than the Octane. So the performance gap will be even worse than in Tom's.

M4>Octane in every way.

I like the old firmware 1412 better. With the new firmware The sequentials are reduced a lot to benefit the 4k at higher queue depths and when you consider a good ssd almost NEVER exceeds qd1. I think its a step backward. And no you cant go back after this update
