TPU got to see OCZ's new JetExpress SSD controller at CES. This new chip promises to be the industry's fastest, rivaled perhaps only by Samsung and its SM951 drives.
JetExpress has a PCIe 3.0 x4 host interface with 4GB/s of bandwidth per direction, resulting in 8GB/s in total. Enthusiast-class SSDs and enterprise products with JetExpress are expected later this year.
The controller supports 8-16 ONFI channels, 1-2 GB of DDR3 DRAM cache, and power loss protection circuits. It supports three popular form-factors, including M.2, 2.5-inch (likely SATA-Express), and SFF-8639. M.2 PCIe prototypes were put up for our lenses.
