OCZ Octane SSD Source

This is the first I've seen this new drive from OCZ so I figured I would share it with you guys. If you check out the specs, this thing has a lot of features.

Let me know what you guys think... I don't know if it's been released yet or not but I would like to see some benchmarks if there out.

This is not news i am afraid,the OCZ Octane has been available for quite some time.

The SSD is great because of the Low latency,however it cant compete with the Sandforce based Vertex 3 Line.

Yes, really. The Vertex 3 is faster. OTOH, no, these came out after the Vertex 3.

Didnt the Everest Controller just come out? I thought that I just heard news that this new controller came out.

Im not even sure what it does and how it performs. Do you know about the Everest Controller?

You are correct. I work at OCZ, and these are NOT new. These are our crappy Everest drives which, by the way, I do most of my testing on. They fail almost every benchmark we run on them.

Vertex 3's remain one of the faster drives we sell in terms of consumer SSD's. (this is NOT counting Z-drives, etc)

I'm sure your company appreciates your honesty about their "crappy" product
