It looks as though OCZ are hard at work on a new Indilinx controller, where according to CEO Ryan Peterson, the Barefoot 3 controller is currently in production over at TSMC. OCZ expects to offer sampling drives based on the Barefoot 3 controller by September.

Peterson also revealed the progress on the new SSD controller during a conference call with financial analysts. There's not much information on the chip itself, but it reportedly sports a 32-bit, 400MHz "Aragon" processor, with a SSD-specific RISC instruction set. Peterson also said that the chip's "primary IT blocks" are licensed from a third-party.

 

OCZ expects these new Barefoot 3-powered SSDs to outperform their current offerings, obviously, with Peterson mentioning a "significant performance increase over [OCZ's] current products", but he didn't provide any numbers. We should expect Barefoot 3-powered SSDs from OCZ sometime before the end of Q3 2012.
