It's time to ditch SATA SSDs and embrace NVMe based drives if you're planning on a new rig. We sighted a few upcoming consumer and enterprise class NVMe SSDs at the Intel Developer Forum 2015 showcase and we've got them compiled in this article. So find out why you should upgrade and the upcoming choices!
For most mainstream users, SSDs that employ TLC (Triple-Level Cell) NAND is the best way to go as it offers the best blend of performance and affordability. OCZ’s new Trion 100 SSD is the latest TLC drive to hit the market and we put it through its paces to see if it’s any good.
OCZ has refreshed its Vector drive with the new Vector 180. The new drive uses OCZ’s in-house developed Barefoot 3 controller and now features power loss protection. We check out this new drive to see if it’s a worthy alternative to kingpins from Samsung and Crucial.
OCZ has just released the first SSD under its new leadership of Toshiba - the Vertex 460. With flash memory giant Toshiba giving backing and support, we gave the drive a spin to get a taste of things to come.
Around this time last year, we brought to you our first ever high-end SSD shootout which pitted the latest and greatest SSDs that were in the market against each other. This year, we've refreshed the shootout with several high profile candidates from Samsung, Plextor, Corsair, OCZ and more doing battle. Find out who emerged victorious!
With the Vertex 450, OCZ is slowly but surely transitioning its product offerings to using its new in-house developed Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller. How does this new SSD fare? We find out.
SSDs are the latest must-have components for users who are serious about performance. And with prices hitting record lows, there's no better to snap one up than now. To help you pick the right one, we tested 10 of the most popular SSDs from the biggest names around.
The OCZ Vector is the company's newest flagship SSD and features a completely new and in-house developed controller, the Indilinx Barefoot 3, and firmware. We test it to see if it challenges the current crop of high-end Marvell and SandForce drives.
After having refreshed their high-end Vertex line-up, OCZ has also renewed their mainstream with the Agility 4 series of SSDs. Like the Vertex, the new Agility drives are equipped with OCZ’s new Indilinx Everest 2 controller and are targeted at more budget-conscious users.
The OCZ Vertex 4 uses the latest Indilinx Everest 2 controller and promises to give SandForce-driven SSDs a run for their money. We investigate to see how this new high-end SSD fares.
