We are live at SC12 from Salt Lake City, Utah this morning and are preparing to answer your SSD, NAND and Intel SSD DC S3700 questions. In about two hours I'll be on a replica bridge set of the starship Enterprise from the original series, alongside Intel's Roger Peene, answering your questions live. Although its a replica of the original bridge, it is an officially sanctioned reproduction by Paramount.

We'll be talking about the S3700, SSDs in general, NAND architecture and even the future of solid state storage. It should be an awesome discussion.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in, we'll repost the video shortly!

Update: If you missed it, you can catch the webcast here.

    This was my original question in the first 3700 article at this site
    Did I miss something?

    With 1:1 mapping, this this sounds like the Worlds first truly O.S. agnostic controller

    Does it require an O.S. with Trim or a partition offset for XP use, or did Intel just make the Worlds first universal SSD?

    The 320 may have handled partition offsets internally but still required Trim for best performance

    Please correct me if I'm wrong
    The readers all basically told me I was wrong in the first article, however.....

    The webcast made it clear that Trim is no longer required

    If Intel kept the partition offset fix in firmware or if that offset fix is implemented at some point, this IS the worlds first truly Universal SSD that does not require a specific O.S. to run optimally

    So Anand, did Intel just create the Worlds first Truly Universal SSD with this or did they drop the partition offset fix that was used on some earlier Intell SSD's

    What I mean is, can this be used with ANY O.S. and still get optimal performance without ANY tweaks of any kind?

    Will the webcast be replayed as a video of some type for people who cannot make it live? Reply

    Is there one? Are you being broadcast into a theatre nearby? :) Reply

    Seems like there is, since you will take questions from them. Also, I have some audio loss and stuttering now... :( Reply

    Can you please buy Anand some rogaine? He's way too young for that kinda hair-loss... Reply
