Octane OCZ SSD 2.5-inch reach 1 TB capacity with SATA-III

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

OCZ became the first company to bring SSD with 1TB capacity into the market at a price of $ 1,300

Octane OCZ SSD is sized 2.5-inch drives with SATA-III 6Gbps interface is offered in a choice of 128GB capacity, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB largest capacity. OCZ claims that the Octane series offers a new level of performance to "a varied workload," which means the drive has been adapted for general use such as transferring files for all different sizes and compression.

This new level of performance was achieved thanks to the use Everest Indilinx controller, which makes the drive is capable of reaching speeds of 560MB / s for reading / read and write speed of 400MB. IOPS for random 4K read assessed on the value of 45,000, and the latency of 0.06ms and 0.09ms pegged on to read and write respectively. Drive also comes with 512MB of DRAM cache.

Invested a lot of money in the SSD is always a difficult decision because of the limited lifetime of the device compared to hard drives. OCZ has eased these concerns to some extent by incorporating proprietary technology NDurance. NDurance expected to make twice the durability of storage with NAND technology and increase the cycle of program / erase that may be from 5,000 to 10,000.

If you do not have a budget of $ 1,300 to spend on the 1TB model, can choose a 128GB capacity that starts at $ 166, 256GB about $ 310 although final pricing has not been confirmed.

OCZ also announced, Octane-S2 series ynag slower storage that offers the same level, but dependent on connection SATA-II 3Gbps. Drive read speeds reaching 275MB S2 / s and 265MB / s for write g. Rated at 30,000 IOPS 4K. No pricing information is given, but it certainly would be cheaper than SATA-III Octane.
