You mean that the SATA version is too low to interleave TRIMs with data 

Because I think that was the case with my mSata SSD.

I don't currently remember the sata version that allowed interleaving 
but that SSD didn't reach or have it.

After trimming performance would go up greatly.

So I don't know about SAS but it might be similar right.
