[Anand] OCZ Firmware Update for Octane, Increases Random Write Performance

post #1 of 3

OCZ released a firmware update for its Octane SSD series. The update carries a version number 1.13 and OCZ claims substantial random write improvements. To refresh everyone's memory on Octane, it's based on the Indilinx Everest controller, the first public outcome of OCZ's Indilinx acquisition. We reviewed Octane last November and it did fairly well in our tests, but it wasn't able to steal the performance crown from SandForce. With this update, Octane is getting closer to SandForce performance.

Noting from the article that the firmware is destructive, the drive WILL be reformatted when updated so back everything up before doing it. Hopefully the next update or so won't be, since it took a while for first-gen Indilinx products to get non-destructive updates.
