OCZ demonstrates SSD memory with unlimited write/erase cycles

Last week at CeBIT 2012 in Hanover, Germany OCZ announced a new technological development in the SSD sphere. Now officially named OCZ æonDrive the new SSD memory features unlimited write/erase cycles and can now be used in devices, doing intensive write/erase cycles.

Until now the main limitation of SSDs and flash drives was the limited number of times a user could write or erase data before the device failed. With æonDrive memory this is no longer the case.

The new SSD memory also features fast access time of just 20 microseconds and can do 140 000 IOPS with 4 KB data blocks and 540 000 IOPS with 512 B data blocks. The OCZ SSD that boasts the new type of memory comes with SATA 3.0 support and 64 GB of maximum capacity.

The secret of the unlimited write/erase cycle number is rather simple though – the new æonDrive memory is in fact regular DRAM memory. The only question that still remains is what happens to the data once power is cut off. OCZ did not give an answer to this question.
