Thanks to Intel’s new firmware and SSD Toolbox application along with Windows 7’s TRIM ability, those with the second generation (G2) 160GB Intel SSD can get some rather noticeable speed improvements.  The bad news is that this update will not have an effect on 80GB models, nor on the 50nm generation.  Those with the G2 160GB drive will have a pleasant surprise; you can see how nice a surprise in Allyn’s review.

“Intel certainly impressed us with this new firmware release. Patching was easy and even worked on a laptop that had trouble with previous Intel firmware patch utilities. The SSD Toolbox app was simple and did its job in an unobtrusive manner. Intel seems to have had the user experience in mind throughout this entire process.”
