I just posted the article OCZ Octane SSD review.

Back in March 2011, OCZ Technology acquired Indilinx, and I now present a review of OCZ’s first SSD to use their own SSD controller, the OCZ Octane series.

The Indilinx Everest SSD processor is at the heart of the new OCZ Octane series of SSDs

Let’s find out how this new SSD performs in our range of tests.

Superb review as usual Dee. :cool:

Amazing performance from that unit. SSDs just seem to get better and better with every revision.

Some interesting results there though, with the revised firmware apparently slowing down some tests yet the drive is actually faster in real world use.

It’s the perfect example of why the real world tests are more important than synthetic benchmarks.

Awesome review Wendy, I want one already, I have 3, 240gb SSDs and I want the 512 so bad I can see it in my computer already. I am waiting for the 3960X C2 stepping to be released then I might take the plunge.

Thanks for the comments.

The key to the Octane’s performance is in the ultra low access times. In some cases the Octane can access data 10 times faster than some other SSDs.
Low latency “rules” in the real world.

We should also see the Everest 2 platform sometime in the summer.
