OCZ Trion 100 Series SSD Review

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.

As mentioned previously, our testing uses incompressible data and includes preconditioning to get repeatable results. The settings we use hurt the S10 and Trion 100 products, but as you can see the Toshiba TLC struggles with random data writes.

In contrast, Corsair's Neutron XT 960GB fares well in the low queue depth tests and performs very well at high queue depths, so OCZ can't point to the controller for its lack of random write performance. The TLC flash is to blame here.
