OCZ plans to announce new ultra modern SSD controller

The famous SSD maker OCZ, which was recently acquired by Toshiba, has announced plans to present a new state-of-the-art SSD memory controller. The event should take place at the on-going CES 2015 which opens today and closes on January 9, 2015.

The new SSD controller is called JetExpress and will soon be in every upcoming OCZ solid-state drive. The chip has native SATA and PCIe/NVMe support and will support numerous form factors including but not limited to M.2, 2.5-inch SATA, and SFF-8639 which enables PCI Express speeds in a compact 2.5-inch form factor. In addition the new controller will have special algorithms that will increase the flash memory endurance of the memory chips inside JetStream-powered SSDs.

At CES 2015 OCZ will also unveil the new Vector 180 series, which will hit the market in early 2015. The new enthusiast-grade SSD line will offer capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB and will take reliability to the next level with the new on-board Power Failure Management Plus (PFM+) feature. In addition OCZ says the Vector 180 line will bring leading performance when it gets presented.
