CES 2012 - OCZ is getting off to an early start choosing to attend Storage Visions this year. OCZ it seems is moving away from SandForce a bit although they did display a SF based R4 dubbed 16x16.


Internally in the company the R4 16 lane 16 SF-2000 controller is called the 16x16 and it looks to be very fast. It uses 16 PCIe 2.0 lanes so you know it has the legs to get off the ground. After that the 16 SandForce controllers kick in, at that point the enterprise card should take flight.

Pfft, who needs PCIe 2.0 though when PCIe 3.0 is ready to take over. The new R5 was on display but in a surprising move OCZ choose to use a new Marvell controller. On the enterprise side of things price is hardly an issue so no one is going to care about the expensive DRAM used with the Marvell controller. We'll get more details tomorrow, you just get the visual tonight.
