Firmware

Date Revision Description
06.01.2011 2CV102M3 This firmware revision fixes enumeration and slow boot issues on SATA 6Gb/s controllers and adds improvements to SMART attributes for more accurate reporting of drive health along with improved NCQ capability.
30.09.2009 2CV102HD This firmware revision contains continuous improvement optimizations intended to provide the best possible user experience with the Intel SSD.
26.10.2009 2CV102HA This firmware revision supports the ATA Data Set Management Command Trim attribute. Additionally, this firmware revision includes several continuous improvement optimizations that provide increased write performance on 160 GB SSDs.
17.08.2009 2CV102G9 This firmware revision is for Intel X25-M SATA SSD 34nm products only. (Intel X18-M SATA SSD 34nm products do not require this

firmware update.) This revision fixes the following two issues:

1) System hangs with BIOS drive password enabled.

2) System inoperable when BIOS drive password disabled or changed.
