We’ve just posted the following news: OCZ announces Deneva 2 series Enterprise SSDs[newsimage]http://static.myce.com//images_posts/2013/09/myce-ocz-deneva2-ssd-95x75.jpg[/newsimage]

CZ today announced the Deneva 2 series Enterprise SSDs. These SSDs come in a 2.5’" form-factor, are build up around 19 nm MLC toggle NAND memory and connect to the computer using the SATA-3 interface.

Does anyone find it strange that they can find nand for the Enterprise series drives but not the consumer SSDs. Try to buy a 512 Vector or even a 256 for MSRP, you cannot, even the new Vertex 4.50 is unavailable for MSRP in any flavor above 128gb. Now they want companies to believe they have nand available for more expensive Enterprise SSDs, the old excuse is wearing thin, “no more nand available. " We are selling all we can produce” .:wink: I love OCZ products, I really do, I invested in over 2,000USD worth of their SSDs, so I wish them well, but I certainly would like to hear a bit more about their future plans for aquiring nand and less about new products that they are not delivering.:wink:

Yes, I for one find it somewhat strange. Let me just sort something out, as I am a noob around here; by MSRP you mean Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price, right?

The Deneva 2 will use 19nm Toggle NAND while their consumer grade SSDs (Vector and Vertex 4, 450 use ONFI NAND, generally IMFT or Micron). ONFI NAND is scarce at the moment, while Toggle NAND appears to be fairly easy to get hold of.

Barefoot 3 can use Toggle NAND, but I have the feeling that will be reserved a new breed of OCZ consumer SSDs.

At least thats an answer i can live with. Looking forward to also.:wink:

I see. Seems like I need to look at current NAND types and availability, as it’s been a while since I was up to speed on that.

Thanks for clarifying, Dee :slight_smile:

It’s just like DDR 3 available at low cost when DDR 2 is available mostly through “used” markets.

Here’s a Samsung NAND whitepaper in pdf and html, easy enough. There’s at least one typo: the speed for Toggle 2.0 and ONFI 3.0 should be 400MB/s, not 50MB/s.

And more: http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/us/html/about/whitepaper.html

They are Samsung papers, so try some Intel’s and Toshiba’s as well.

[B]NEW Breed of SSDs, [/B]could that be PCI-E SSDs, I know I have to wait and see like everyone else. LOL. :flower:


#9

Thanks Kenshin, that’ll be what I’m after.

Alan1476: PCIe SSDs wouldn’t be an entirely new breed, as we already have drives from Fusion, OCZ, Asus, LSI etc, but there is still much potential to utilize there. Sign me up for some ReRAM drives, please!

I wonder what OCZ is putting inside the upcoming Intrepid 3 (which I understand uses the Everest 2 controller - as used in the Vertex 4)

@Alan - I think OCZ is moving strategically towards the more profitable enterprise market, so maybe this explains why they may favour using whatever NAND they can get hold of in this direction.

Thanks JR. that does make sense for them. But I would hate to have bought the last Consumer OCZ SSD in the Vertex 4.50 256gb. I also have a few Vectors, I love them but you cant buy anymore, none for sale in the US at a reasonable price.
