    Lightbulb Is necessary use fstrim on nvme-ssd ? [Dell xps 15 9550]

    Hi guys,
    as you can see in the title i have to ask you if it is necessay to use the fstrim on a nvme ssd, specifically on a dell xps 15 (9550).
    I'm asking because surfing the web i have read that isn't necessary to use fstrim on this ssd type.
    Any justified opinion and/or advise will be well accepted.

    Thank you.

    Where did you see that info? I'd be interested.

    But Arch which normally has good info says this:
    NVMe trim, but not discard

    Search here goo.gl/e6QY2I for this phrase "Partitioning is comparable with memory cards (so no /dev/sdb2 but for example /dev/nvme0n1p3), TRIM is no longer required, you might have to check if your BIOS will boot from it, tools as hdparm or smartmontools will not work or only partially, etc." .
    It made me doubt so i asked.
    It's my first time with an nvme drive, so i don't want to waste it.
