OCZ Technology Group, a leading maker of solid-state drives, on Tuesday introduced a new series of SSD that promises extreme performance - thanks to Indilinx Everest controller - amid relatively low price-points.

The OCZ Petrol Series delivers bandwidth up to 400MB/s and 35 000 IOPS, and is optimized for the complete spectrum of file types and sizes, according to OCZ. Additionally, advanced features unique to Indilinx, such as proprietary page mapping algorithms, allow for steady mixed-workload performance, and innovative latency reduction technology enables superior access times as low as 0.06ms, the manufacturer said. Petrol ensures the most consistent and reliable performance as well as minimized performance degradation even after the drive's storage capacity is highly utilized.

"Until today, SSD adoption has been limited to high performance applications due to the high cost of SSDs in relation to slower rotating discs, and we are proud to once again close the gap in pricing without sacrificing durability. The new Petrol Series showcases the flexibility of the Indilinx Everest platform and NDurance Technology, allowing OCZ to deliver the benefits of SSDs to a wide new set of applications while retaining the superior real world performance and reduced latency that separate Everest-based SSDs from our competitors," said Ryan Petersen, chief executive officer of OCZ Technology.

OCZ promises that Petrol-series SSDs with capacities ranging from 64GB to 512GB will cost 30% lower than comparable previous-generation SSDs. The OCZ Petrol family of solid-state drives will be available throughout OCZ's global channel in the coming weeks.

- collapse thread

if you use it as a boot drive or a preformance enchanting drive than who would care if it last 3 to 5 years than it will be already obsolete in can backup it on your hdd. only enterprise should care about durability.

ummm no. Nobody wants bsod, nobody wants their drive to die randomly 6 months in, and everyone wants their data to be readable 6 years down the line no if or buts. They must call you the joker.
