OCZ demos second-generation Indilinx Everest controller

OCZ seems to have put SSD chip development in overdrive since it's already showing off the Everest 2 controller although the first-gen Everest silicon has barely been out for a few months. Codenamed IDX400M00-BC, the new Everest chip is supposed to deliver sequential read/write speeds of up to 550/500 MB/s, up to 90,000 4 KB random write IOPS, and significantly improved small block performance.

The first solid state drives based on the Everest 2 are expected at the end of Q2.

Lets see if they will ever get their act together and produce firmware that fixes all issues with their previous products and keeps the newer stuff working properly too. or will they ignore their older users...

Yes, even if a firmware "safety fix" slows down performance... let the people choose... reliability or no-reliability.

PS. Shrink new controller to fit. Rotated 45┬┤does look silly. And if you INSIST on rotating, print sideways!

I do recall Seagate having issues with 1 gen of their drives but they did release a firmware that maintained performance and fixed reliability of the drives

Good thing about in-house controllers is that you don't have to wait for 3rd party fixes (like SandForce BSOD issues on standby not long ago). If they see the problems they can solve them on their own.

whenever i read indilinx, i hear the lemmiwinks song from southpark.


SSD's seem to be improving on a monthly rate, good for consumers.
