Updating your Intel SSD firmware for better performance

We’ve just posted our first Wim’s BIOS video on YouTube! In the video we show step-by-step how to update the firmware of your Intel SSD (Solid State Drive)
The newest release adds some performance improvements in the NCQ area, so it’s a good idea to update to squeeze the best performance out of your drive!

The firmware update essentially boils down to the following steps:

  1. Download the Intel SSD firmware ISO file
  2. Burn the ISO file to a CD. (preferably a CDRW or DVD-RW so you’ll be able to reuse the CD again for other purposes)
  3. Boot your PC from the CD
  4. Follow the instructions to flash the new SSD firmware to your drive
  5. Reboot and enjoy 🙂
