OCZ Octane announces “world’s first” 1TB SSD

One of the reasons why the MacBook Air is popular, apart from its slim profile and looks, would be the SSD that it uses that allows for a speedy boot, read and write time. Unfortunately while we’d all love to sport SSDs in our computers, their limited capacities and price have always been a limiting factor, at least until now where OCZ Technology has launched the Octane SATA 3.0 and SATA 2.0 SSD series, which are being touted as the first world’s first SSD to achieve a 1TB capacity.

These SSDs will be based off Indilinx Everest and are also boasted as having record-breaking access times. The Indilin Everest control will feature a 512MB DRAM cache, with the SATA 3.0 featuring read speeds of 560MB/s and write speeds of 400MB/s, and the SATA 2.0 with read and write speeds of 275MB/s and 265MB/s respectively.

For those worried about lifespan and durability and its effect on performance, the Octane SSDs will be equipped with Indilinx’s proprietary NDurance technology, which apparently not only increases the lifespan of the NAND flash memory, but ensures reliable and consistent performance and minimizes performance degradation when it is highly utilized. The Octane SSDs will be available 1st November from OCZ’s global channels, but unfortunately no word on how much they will cost.
