TRIM may not be Required
Authored by: tempel on Apr 07, '11 06:27:32AM

Correct. Being quite experienced with file systems, disk drivers and drives in general, I can confirm that a disk can't optimize for this fully without knowing which sectors / blocks on the disk are still in use and which not. And the OS tells the disk which blocks are free by using said trim command.
