Solid, proven performance of the MGX controller and TurboWrite caching.
Outstanding low latencies at lower queue depths.
Lowest SSD launch MSRP (cost/GB) we have seen to date!
120GB model cost is a bit high given its...
We are trying something different here. Folks tend to not like to click through pages and pages of benchmarks, so I'm going to weed out those that show little to no delta across different units (PCMark). I'm also going to group results...
We have shifted over to combining our results into two groupings for consumer reviews. First up is sequential performance:
The external housing is a slight revision to what we saw with the 840 EVO. As you might note above, the top and bottom are now flipped. Aside from that, construction feels similar and just as...
You may have seen a wave of Micron 3D NAND news posts these past few days, and while many are repeating the 11-month old news with talks of 10TB/3.5TB on a 2.5"/M.2 form factor SSDs, I'm here to dive into the bigger implications of what the...
*Note* This piece originally stated 'A15nm', however this was an error in the Trion 150 spec sheet at OCZ. It has been corrected in this article (as well as at the OCZ web site).
2015 was a bit of a rough year for OCZ, as their integration with...
NVMe was a great thing to happen to SSDs. The per-IO reduction in latency and CPU overhead was more than welcome, as PCIe SSDs were previously using the antiquated AHCI protocol, which was a carryover from the SATA HDD days. With NVMe came additional...
*note* If you skipped straight to the last page of this piece, you missed the important stuff! Go back a page to get the goods!
