[Anand] Computex 2011: OCZ SSD Round Up

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The New Indilinx Everest SSD
http://www.anandtech.com/show/4385/t...nx-everest-ssd
Quote:
It's Indilinx's first 6Gbps controller, good for up to 520MB/s reads and 410MB/s writes (but "only" 20K 4KB random write IOPS). The reference drive features two supercaps as its power loss protection circuitry. Everest will start at 64GB and be available in configurations of up to 1TB at customer request.
Quote:
OCZ did have a Vertex Plus on display, which is the old Barefoot controller but with new firmware that allegedly improves performance up to 500%.

OCZ's RevoDrive Hybrid, HDD & SSD on PCIe Card
http://www.anandtech.com/show/4384/c...d-on-pcie-card
Quote:
OCZ is feeling quite experimental these days as it has announced a hybrid RevoDrive. Take the new RevoDrive 3 and use it as a cache in front of a 2.5" HDD (either 500GB or 1TB capacity) and you've got the RevoDrive Hybrid.

OCZ Z-Drive R4 88, Eight SF-2281 Controllers in RAID-0
http://www.anandtech.com/show/4383/c...z-zdrive-r4-88
Quote:
OCZ had a 3U Colfax server with multiple Z-Drive R4 88s running an Iometer 4KB random read test, the end result was a single server that delivered more than 1 million IOPS. The drive is spec'd for up to 2.9GB/s reads and 2.7GB/s writes. Obviously as an 8-way RAID-0 there are reliability concerns and I'm not exactly sure the type of enterprise customer that would deploy such a thing, but it's a neat drive to look at nonetheless.

OCZ's RevoDrive 3 & RevoDrive 3 X2, Now With TRIM
http://www.anandtech.com/show/4382/c...-now-with-trim
Quote:
The other big improvement is that OCZ made some modifications to both the SandForce and on-board RAID controller firmware to allow everything from SMART data to TRIM to be passed through to the system host. In the past RevoDrive users were stuck with a PCIe card that couldn't be TRIMed, but with the 3 you get full TRIM support. Formatting the drive under Windows 7 or deleting files off of will result in those LBAs being TRIMed by the SF controllers.

OCZ is promising up to 900MB/s reads and 700MB/s writes (highly compressible of course). Random writes are spec'd at up to 120,000 for 4KB transfers. OCZ expects the 240GB capacity to sell for $599.

EDIT:
Sweet, holy monkey nuts! <3GB/s reads on that Z-Drive. Maybe we can expect a 2.50 USD / 1GB ratio for that early next year?

Er.. I have <1GB/s reads on my 320 (like every other SSD on the market). Maybe you meant >1GB/s?

Edited. It's been a long morning.

I like the picture of the program with the speedometer-like animation being maxed out on the Z-drive.

Hybrid drive... Interesting concept. I wonder if they're serious about it? I know the momentus had some issues.

The Intel Rapid Response Technology enabled on the Z68 chipset and the HighPoint RocketHybrid cards also provide consumer SSD caching.
