Windows 10 Patch out for Intel, Toshiba NVMe SSDs

Windows 10 April 2018 gets a major patch for systems using some Intel and Toshiba NVMe drives

Earlier I’ve covered the issues Intel (and Toshiba) SSDs had with Windows 10 Spring 2018 update. After its rolls, some users using certain NVMe SSDs faced issues starting with stability issues. Eventually, Microsoft had to pause the updates for systems using SSDs to have an issue with. A few days ago, the KB4100403 update is rolled out to fix the problem.

The issues with Intel SSDs were the first to be reported. The problem with Toshiba SSDs was its higher-than-normal power consumption, therefore significantly reducing battery life in notebooks. Toshiba SSDs were operational, unlike Intel which resulted in multiple blue screens and erratic trips to the UEFI. Regardless, excess heat generated by the NVMe SSDs will reduce its performance.

The KB4100403 update includes other fixes. The complete fix log is as follows:

Microsoft didn’t mention which units were affected, such that it addressed the issue with power regression on systems with NVMe SSDs. 600p and Pro 6000 were the affected drives from Intel, while Toshiba XG4, XG5 and BG3 were the known affected versions.  Since Microsoft made a major patch for its Windows 10 April 2018 update, it can concentrate on the Redstone 5 where it will provide native support for Thunderbolt 3 devices, including external GPU casings we’ve been seeing for a while. The Redstone 5 update should roll out in October 2018.
