What's the next generation of SSD and will it be worth the wait?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new system and the only carryover component was my SSD (see sig). I am going to need a larger SSD in the not too distant future and am seriously considering a Crucial M4 since it seems to be the concensus pick for speed/reliability. However since I don't need to upgrade right away I am wondering if I should hold off for whatever the next generation of SSDs holds. What are SSD tech roadmaps looking like these days and is there an imminent advance that would be worth waiting for? I am willing to wait up to 3 months.

There really is nowhere to go at this point. Sata 6gb/s is currently almost to it's limits with the sequential speeds of a lot of drives. So until a new Sata standard comes along, minor refreshes of current products is what we'll see.

The M4 is a great drive that boasts 500mb sequentials just like the Sandforce based drives but also has better access time and 4k speeds.

Intel 520 (Sandforce), Samsung 830 (in-house everything), and OCZ Octane (Indilinx Everest controller) should be going head to head in the near future, it'll be very interesting to watch since at this point they should be competing on the levels of latency and random read/write performance.

I am personally waiting for the OCZ Octane, as it has respectable uncompressed incompressible data reads. The main selling point is their claim of $1.10-$1.30 per gigabyte. That translates to around $150 or so for 128GB, which is really awesome.

Uncompressed data is easy for current ssd to read. All of the current Sandforce 2281 drives do 500/500+ with uncompressed data.

You want a drive that's just as fast with incompressible data.

Hopefully OCZ will have no launch troubles. After seeing the way the support forum treated users during the bsod bug fiasco, I'm not interested.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I ended up pouncing on an M4 128GB for $180 at newegg this morning. Could have waited for the next gen stuff but I'm a bad waiter.

Argh, my english let me down. I meant that the Octane was superior to the sandforce drives in handling incompressible data. >.>
