Toshiba beat the Computex product announcement flood by shipping the new XS700 240GB external SSD early. USB Type-C connectivity for up to 550 MB/s performance.
Head to our forums to win one of three Toshiba TR200 series SSDs, ranging in size from 240 GB all the way up 960 GB.
Toshiba's OCZ division steals the NVMe spotlight with a very high performance M.2 SSD that aims to take the throne from Intel and Samsung. The new drive is a fire breather when pushed to the limits.
OCZ is on its second-generation TLC-based effort. The new Trion 150 updates the flash to Toshiba's 15nm TLC, but the largest improvement comes from firmware that increases sustained write performance.
Toshiba started shipping the XG3 last year, but the SSD remained an OEM secret until now. The XG3 is coming to the retail market as OCZ's RevoDrive 400 in 2016. Today, we look at an OEM XG3 to get a feel for the device's performance.
On the surface, the OCZ Trion 150 is a revamped Trion 100 with Toshiba 15nm flash. Under the cover, OCZ tweaked the firmware to enable more sequential data transfer performance.
OCZ will release two new SSDs in early 2016. The RevoDrive 400 and Trion 150 will help the company gain market share that has slipped in recent years.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced charges against OCZ Technologies' founder and former CEO Ryan Petersen, along with the previous CFO, Arthur Knapp.
Now firmly in the Toshiba camp, OCZ's Trion 100 Series is the first retail product to ship with Toshiba's new A19 TLC NAND flash.
OCZ's Trion 100 uses Toshiba's proprietary Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC), which dramatically improves the correction capabilities compared to LDPC used by other controller makers.
