I am experiencing problems with one of two Intel SSD since approx

Intel Optane Memory H10 with Solid State Storage (Intel Optane Memory 32GB + Intel QLC 3D NAND SSD 512GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0) - Intel Optane Memory M10 Series (16GB, M.2 42mm PCIe 3.0, 20nm, 3D XPoint). I have been doing some tests on several Intel chipset hardware (mostly i7, 5th, 7th, 8th gen., running SATA drives from HDD 5400rpm to HDD 7200rpm to SSD). When doing winsat disk test, I have noticed there is little to no speed differences. Midi drum patterns free. Whatever storage driver is in the system, has a connection to SATA AHCI Controller. These controller drivers are an essential component of the system as without them, you’d start experiencing trouble accessing PC drivers. Intel does not provide a separate device driver for SATA/AHCI devices; you use the standard SATA/AHCI device driver that is supplied by Microsoft. When you install the Chipset Device software package (as Leonardo has suggested), it does not actually install any device drivers. Ill try and keep this straight and to the point but at this point myself, intel, and dell are baffled. I have a Dell XPS730 with the Nvidia Nforce 790i chipset. I run two 500 gig SATA drives under RAID 0. I recently installed an Intel X25 80 gig SSD and have ran into problems. Windows recognizes the drive as SCSI in device manager.


July 2017. Reformatting the disc improved the situation for a while,
currently the disc is rejected during boot.

Sata Controller Driver For Intel Ssd M.2

  • 2 x SSD: INTEL SSDSC2BW480A4 DC32
  • Intel Patsburg AHCI SATA controller

Intel Chipset Sata Raid Controller Driver

The disk is part of a ZFS mirror:

The logs show two commands that run into timeouts:
  • WRITE_FPDMA_QUEUED
  • SOFT_RESET



The setup was running fine since initial setup (> 1 year) and tests with
other operation systems were successful (CentOS on same hardware, MacOS
with disk on external disk controller). First I suspected r317080 as possible
reason. I was wrong, reverting the change didn't help.
The disk is also rejected while booting from a FreeBSD 11.1 rescue image.
What I've tried up to now (without success):
  • hint.ahci.X.msi=0 # with proper X
  • kern.cam.ada.X.quirks=2 # default: 1
  • swapping disks ada0 and ada1
  • changing cables
  • after the first errors I was writing zeros to the disk (under MacOS
    and FreeBSD when I could still mount the disk). No errors, but I read
    later this is not a good idea on SSD..

My confusion was increased further by reading this Intel discussion.
Such a symptom was fixed in a firmware update - only available for the
more expensive professional version S3610 but not for the 530 series. If
that's the same problem, my attempts to switch off TRIM in FreeBSD were
Pcienot successful, while other OS work around that issue? Am I digging in
the wrong area?
Since the ada1 disk is rejected during boot only the remaining SSD on
ada0 is shown here (same product).
