IOPs Performance Up to 120,000
Incredible performance in workstation and heavy-duty environments with multiple data threads
No Compression-Related Performance Limitations
Better performance with real world data streams of varying compressibility as well as fully incompressible data such as videos and multimedia files, encrypted data, archive files such as .ZIP files and software
Indilinx Infused Everest 2 Platform
Leading edge dual-ARM controller architecture enables faster performance like nothing else you've experienced
Fast Boot Times and Ultra-Low Latency
Boot up in as little as 9 seconds, and industry-low latencies of .04 reads and .02 writes enable superior multitasking and flawless performance
5-Year Warranty
Backed by OCZ's renowned service for ultimate peace of mind
Ndurance 2.0 Technology
Advanced suite of NAND Flash management to increase durability and reliability to expand the NAND's lifespan
Faster Performance for Cost-Effectiveness
SSDs have 100x greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
Because many HDDs are needed to achieve the same performance, SSDs offer greater cost effectiveness for IOPS per dollar
Greater Durability
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards are shock resistant up to 1500G, unlike HDDs with various moving parts
Less Power, Silent Operation
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard drives, delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment.
With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment
Additional Features
Performance optimization: TRIM (requires OS support), dynamic and static wear-leveling, background garbage collection
Ndurance 2.0 technology (Reduced write amplification without compression, Advanced multi-level ECC, Adaptive NAND Flash management)
