OCZ Technology Reveals Indilinx Everest 2 Controller

OCZ has utilized three versions of the Indilinx Everest controller over the years. The company first utilized the Indilinx Everest controller with its original OCZ Vertex drive. In 2011, OCZ purchased Indilinx Everest and introduced its Octane series SSD based on the new controller using a SATA III interface. In 2012, OCZ is set to launch the third generation Indilinx controller (second under OCZ ownership), which is designed specifically for I/O-intensive workloads in a wide range of applications. The new controller (IDX400M00-BC vs. IDX300M00-BC) supports performance numbers around 550MB/s sequential reads, 500MB/s sequential writes and 90,000 Random Write IOPS with the newest 2xnm flash technology. The Everest 2 platform supports up to 2TB capacity in a compact 2.5-inch form factor. The new controller is expected to be released in Q2 of 2012. The new controller could be the basis of OCZ's new Vertex performance line (a.k.a. Vertex 4) and the final sign of moving away from SandForce based controllers.

    Sounds promising (550/500 MBps read/write and 90000 IOPS). Looks like what I will be getting to replace my Vertex 2.
