It wasn't but a few short months ago that Indilinx climbed back into the ring with their first new release in almost three years. Now a division of OCZ Technology, Indilinx is ready to make news again today with their new Everest 2 platform.
Today we're going to walk you through what we know about the new controller, what we don't know about the controller and touch on some OCZ distributed benchmarks. A full review of the new OCZ Vertex 4 256GB and 512GB SSDs (which use this very controller) will make it to the site at the same time as this article is published.
Indilinx's first Everest platform came and went without too much fuss. OCZ debuted Indilinx's first SATA 6Gbps controller on the Octane series of products, but Everest didn't quite make it in the world of high-performance SSDs currently dominated by low-cost Team SandForce products. OCZ instead used Octane as a building block and to fill a small gap that existed between Agility 3 with asynchronous flash and Vertex 3 with synchronous flash.
The experience gained was much more beneficial to both Indilinx and OCZ than the number of products sold. The lessons learned were quite simple from both. Indilinx walked away with a better understanding of what mainstream users perceived to be fast. And for OCZ, it was about getting back into the swing of marketing a product with a coveted SandForce Driven logo.
It was a win-win for both side and today we see the second chapter of the story.
