Vertex 2 Goes Small and Deneva Enterprise SSDs
Also on display are new 1.8 Vertex 2 and Onyx SATA II SSDs for mobile systems. The OCZ 1.8 drives are ideal for users seeking to integrate SSDs into systems with small form factors such as ultra-thin notebooks, netbooks, nettops, and tablet PCs. Built with SATA 3Gb/s and available in a range of capacities, the drives easily integrate into todays mobile platforms and feature TRIM support for Windows 7 systems.designed for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations. The nice thing about these 1.8″ drives is that since they use a Sandforce SF-1200 series controller the performance remains the same as on the 2.5″ SSDs. This means these drives can reach up to 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write, which is darn impressive for something that small! These drives will be slightly more expensive than their 2.5″ counterparts, but that price premium is normal for drives this small.
OCZ had a demo system with eight new 100GB Deneva Series SSDs in an eight-way RAID configuration, these drives are qualified specifically for the highest throughput, compatibility, and reliability in enterprise environments.
OCZ had their Deneva RAID demo running on an LSI MegaRAID 9260-8i controller and the performance was very impressive.
Other than that OCZ had the usual demo systems up and running showing off their power supply lines and memory modules, but nothing new to report there that we haven’t already covered in recent weeks! Stay tuned for more Computex 2010 coverage!
