OCZ Ibis Solid State Drive gets off on the right footing

Solid state drives are generally noted for their superior data transfer speed, but OCZ decided to up the ante this time around with HSDL speed – where this new interface idea intends to bypass the bandwidth limitations of standard SATA/SAS interconnects. This will be achieved thanks to a high-quality SAS cable that will hook up its new Ibis drive to a PCI Express host card, which results in a whopping 2GBps of total bandwidth. Of course, feeding this massive data pipe is no mean feat, which is why OCZ has decided to stack up a quartet of SandForce SF-1200 controllers within the Ibis. Such performance won’t come cheap though, where it will cost you a handsome $529 for 100GB worht of storage space. Oh yeah, just in case you don’t know what HSDL stands for, it is High Speed Data Link.
