OCZ VP of marketing Alex Mei talks about solid state disks and stressed that every SSDs needs the right controller.
“We love the SandForce controllers and it is obvious we work closely with them as we were the first to deliver any SSDs in volume based on SandForce silicon, and you can expect to see new products outside of the 2.5” form factor that make use of SandForce solutions as well. SandForce is also a key partner on a number of our enterprise drive offerings,” said Mr. Mei.
However, not everyone needs those advanced controllers inside their PCs.
“We are maintaining our existing Vertex line which makes use of Indilinx controllers and also just recently introduced the Onyx SSD which is a mainstream SSD that delivers a good balance of performance and value, this drive also makes use of an Indilinx controller and a number of our existing Z-Drive PCIe solutions also are designed with Indilinx,” stressed the vice-president of OCZ.
