OCZ debuts new enterprise-class SSDs

Struggling memory devices maker OCZ, which was recently purchased by Toshiba, has presented a new breed of enterprise-class solid-state drives under the brand name Intrepid 3000. The new company products deliver the industry’s best sustained performance and consistent I/O responses.

The Intrepid 3000 series SSDs are based on the Everest 2 platform (a combination between the Marvell 88SS9187 controller and OCZ proprietary firmware) and on 19 nm NAND flash memory delivering capacities of up to 800 GB. The entire line can be divided in two sub-lines – the Intrepid 3600 and Intrepid 3800 lines – and the drives that belong to them can be found with capacities of 100 GB, 200 GB, 400 GB and 800 GB; all of them come in the usual 2.5-inch form factor. In addition the new drives feature a number of technologies that improve performance and prolong the drive life. As to performance they reach 520 MB/sec of sequential read speed and 470 MB/sec of sequential write speed with 91K IOPS of random reads and 40K IOPS for random writes.

The new OCZ SSDs will be available in retail channels in early 2014. The drives will come with a 5-year warranty but their pricing is still unknown.
