OCZ Technology Octane 512GB Solid State Drive with 1.13 Performance Firmware - Packaging and The Drive

With the new firmware in hand we retest the Octane 512GB and see how it goes this time around.

Manufacturer: OCZ Technology

The Packaging




OCZ uses a newer blister pack package for the Octane.


We're starting to see this same package used on drives that ship without a desktop adapter bracket.



The Drive




The Octane is a standard 2.5" drive with a height of 9mm. One side of the case is plastic and the other side is aluminum.




The aluminum wraps around the sides as well so all of the mounting locations are metal. The SATA power and data connectors are where they should be so you won't have any issue installing the drive in your notebook or desktop with an adapter bracket (not included).




Inside we see the Indilinx Everest controller. Half of the flash and DRAM cache is located on each side. The 512GB model uses TI switches and allows the controller to talk to all of that high density flash.




The other side holds the rest of the flash.
