OCZ Octane Review
28 May 2012
Summary: The biggest problem with the OCZ Octane is Samsung’s 830 Series, which is available in the same capacities (aside from the Octane’s unmatched 1TB model), is faster in every single benchmark, and is cheaper than the Octane—by $100, at the 512GB capacity. The Octane has more-than-reasonable performance and we like the fact that it has the new Indilinx controller, but given its price and the existence of cheaper, better alternatives, it’s not the best bang for your buck.
Pros: New controller, plenty of cache; decent speeds; strong writes.

Excerpt: We have reviewed many OCZ solid state drives in the last year and today we are looking at their latest Octane 512GB model. There is no doubt that OCZ have been at the forefront of SSD development in the last year, focusing almost exclusively on Sandforce based products. For those of you who have been around as long as me however, you may remember that OCZ were the first company to partner up with Indilinx and today they reaffirm that union by including an Indilinx...
Summary: Con la linea di SSD Octane, OCZ sta facendo un primo tentativo di ridurre la sua dipendenza dagli altri produttori per l'approvigionamento dei controller con cui equipaggiare i propri SSD.
I risultati, guardando i test svolti sulle unità Octane da 512GB dalle altre testate giornalistiche sul web sono alquanto confortanti, mostrando che il drive, in questo specifico taglio, riesce a tenere testa ai prodotti equipaggiati dal blasonato SandForce SF-2281 o dal collaudato...
Excerpt: Grunnlaget for OCZ sin SSD-suksess var med første generasjon Vertex- og Agility-SSD-er. I likhet med mange andre aktører i 2009 satset OCZ på å benytte kontrollerbrikker fra det sør-koreanske selskapet Indilinx.
