OCZ Vertex 4 128/256 GB and New Firmware 1.5
31 July 2012
Summary: Flagship solid state drives from OCZ – Vertex 4 – underwent yet another spec modification caused by the release of the new firmware version 1.5. Therefore, we decided to retest the “updated” Vertex 4 SSDs and try to figure out the reasons behind the notorious performance drop after filling up more than half of the available space.
OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB and 512 GB Solid State Drives Review
29 May 2012
Summary: About a month ago OCZ launched a completely new family of high-performance SSDs based around the proprietary Indilinx Everest 2 controller, and very recently they released new firmware version 1.4 for it, which was supposed to increase its speed even more. Will this make Vertex 4 the fastest consumer grade SSD with SATA 6 Gbps interface? Let’s find out!
Conclusion: The Indilinx Everest 2 controller is a real competitor to SandForce and Marvell, but for the everyday user, we see no compelling reasons to overlook the tried and trusted for something new and unproven.
Summary: In questi giorni ci è giunta notizia, inizialmente ufficiosa, poi confermata direttamente da OCZ, che i controller Everest ed Everest 2 utilizzati sulle linee di prodotti Octane, Petrol e Vertex 4 non sono effettivamente prodotti da OCZ come tutti pensavamo; si tratta, infatti, di controller prodotti da Marvell rimarchiati da OCZ e dotati di firmware sviluppato da Indilinx.
