  1. OCZ has introduced its next generation solid state drive memory controller today in the form of the new Indilinx Everest chip. As you may recall, OCZ went all-in with SSD…

    I'll be interested to see what kind of price tag they hang on these drives, would sure like to see the 256GB drives drop in price. I've got the original OCZ 120GB Vertex with the Indilinx controller and it just keeps plugging away without any issues.
     
  3. Drives have cpu's now? Tivo through one commercial and look what you miss.
     
  4. Why would anyone buy something other than a Sandforce controller?

    While the Sandforce is very good there are quite a few other viable options. Think the jury is out until we see some benchmarks with the new Indilinx controller.

    Oh, they've had that for quite a while actually. Well, the equivalent anyway. Considering technologies like SCSI and SAS - you'll in fact see that implementing a controller on board has been common practice for some time!

    What really surprises me is the dual core-style CPU on board... I've seldom heard of that - sounds like fun!

    If anything, I'd keep my on this controller because OCZ previously worked with this company before they bought them and I'm sure the controller is going to be optimized and stable. Hopefully actually.
     
  8. Well I will def get SSD containing this, depending on the Benchmarks, MLC nand is cheaper, 3 bit NAND is cheaper again. I, for one, am very interested in wake + resume times. If these are optimized for this, then greeeat, as Tony would say.
    Sandforce are like HC porn, very degrading if used for long periods.
