CES 2012 - CES 2012 is already heating up even though the show floor doesn't open till tomorrow. OCZ already displayed some products at Storage Visions 2012 but today we can talk about consumer products.


OCZ is quite excited about their Indilinx purchase and it looks like Everest II is getting really close. At their suite today we crashed in a little early to take a peek at an actual sample up and running. Let's go ahead and point out this was an early sample and we don't need to remind you that performance generally increases as firmware progresses.

Up close and personal with Everest II. The drive at this time is paired with Intel 25nm flash but Samsung 20nm, IMFT 20nm and Toshiba 24nm Toggle Flash could be substituted before this drive carries the Vertex 4 name.

Nothing is confirmed at this time but an the Vertex namesake could very well fall back under the Indilinx banner. OCZ was showing some IOMeter tests with the drive and comparing them to SF-2281 / asynchronous flash drives. We'll wait and see what happens as we get closer to a possible June launch.
