Is TRIM or Garbage Collection in SSD/NVMe drives still a consideration in Servers?

I noticed a couple reviews with Highpoint's new M.2 NVMe RAID controller . What I noticed  was that there were testing with consumer NVMes which begs the question about what is going on with TRIM/Garbage Collection.

   Everyone was staying away from consumer SSDs in servers primarily because RAID controllers didn't support TRIM. Have they made any major improvements to TRIM or Garbage Collection?  Do any RAID controllers at this point support TRIM? or are you still limited to Enterprise SSDs/NVMes in servers for power protection and garbage collection?
