OCZ Launches Vector SSD Series With New Barefoot 3 Controller


OCZ Technology has just made available its new SATA III-based Vector SSD Series featuring the company's next-generation Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller.

OCZ's hardware and firmware teams developed the new controller silicon and firmware completely in-house to enable full design control over the Vector SSD Series roadmap. OCZ claims that the new Vector SSDs provide 'exceptional' input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance and the Barefoot 3 controller consistently delivers superior sustained performance over time regardless of whether the data streams are in compressed or uncompressed formats.



"The development of the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller architecture is a crowning achievement in our company's history, being our first controller silicon and firmware completely designed in-house from start to finish using all of the OCZ technology development teams," said Ralph Schmitt, CEO for OCZ Technology. "These are the first SSD products delivered under the new OCZ and leverages cutting-edge controller technology to deliver a groundbreaking level of sustained performance and reliability for customers seeking a superior SSD for their high performance computing applications."

The Vector SSD Series is available in 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB capacities, and promises read bandwidth of up to 550 MB/s, write bandwidth of up to 530 MB/s, random read performance of up to 100,000 IOPS. The Vector's 7 mm sleek alloy housing supports a wide spectrum of computers including the latest thin form factor notebooks, and each Vector SSD is also bundled with a 3.5-inch desktop adapter bracket and Acronis True Image cloning software to enable quick data transfer from legacy hard disk drive (HDD) storage to high performance Vector SSD storage.

The Barefoot 3 controller also includes a suite of flash management tools that can analyze and dynamically adapt to increasing NAND vulnerabilities as flash cells wear or process geometries get smaller. OCZ claims that the new controller overcomes the shortcomings associated with MLC NAND flash memory and is specified to deliver 20 GB host writes per day for 5 years.

Pricing:

- Vector 128 GB, €135
- Vector 256 GB, €250
- Vector 512 GB, €525
