PC Perspective had the opportunity to test the performance of an early engineering sample of OCZ's upcoming series of Summit solid state disks which are based on a brand new controller from Samsung. The unit the reviewer got in his hands featured 250GB of MLC flash memory and 64MB of on-board cache to boost the performance of the drive. You can read the report over here.
In HD Tach the drive shows average read speeds of 208.4MB/s and average write speeds of 172.1MB/s. The read speed is a bit slower than the Intel X25-M but the write speed is significantly faster. The OCZ Summit SSD series is expected to be available next month in 60GB, 120GB and 250GB capacities for around $199, $399, and $829, respectively.
