OCZ Indilinx Everest 2 chip to arrive in June

Posted on Monday, January 09 2012 @ 23:44:38 CET by

AnandTech reports OCZ's Indilinx Everest 2 SSD controller is slated to arrive in June 2012. This new chip promises to enable read speeds as high as 550MB/s and write speeds of up to 500MB/s. IOPS benchmark screenshots can be viewed at Anand.
Whereas Everest 1 was a competitive performer, Everest 2 is designed to really go after the performance crown. OCZ has focused more on small block performance as well as reducing write amplification, both issues I've brought up regarding the current Everest in our reviews of OCZ's Octane. Everest 2 is an updated controller (IDX400M00-BC vs. IDX300M00-BC) with a new firmware architecture designed to address these shortcomings. Both it and the original Everest controller will co-exist in the market for a period of time, but the Everest 2 will clearly be aimed at the high end. Target performance is around 550MB/s sequential reads, 500MB/s sequential writes and 90K 4KB random write IOPS (the Iometer screenshots in the gallery below show early 4KB Random Write and 128KB Sequential Write performance, using our own Iometer tests, in that order).
