OCZ has announced the upcoming release of the Deneva 2 and Intrepid lines of mSATA SSDs designed for slim servers, netbooks, dual drive notebooks and network security devices.
The Deneva 2 will be available in both SATA 2 (SF-2141) and SATA 3 configurations (SF-2181) and the SATA 3 version will reach typical SandForce numbers of parallel 500MB/s read and write transfer speeds.
Interestingly enough, we are now seeing OCZ’ newly acquired Indilinx enter the picture as the Intrepid mSATA features Indilinx Arowana Flash Translation Layer with Hyper-Queuing, resulting in increased sequential write speeds and IOPS. The Intrepid Series also maximizes the lifespan of low-endurance flash with Indilinx Ndurance Technology with sophisticated wear-leveling algorithms for reduced write amplification and advanced over provisioning.
The Deneva 2 is available in capacities of 30, 60 and 120GB and now sampling to OEM customers.
