Computex 2015: OCZ’s Introduces Trion 100 TLC SSD, 6.4TB Z-Drive 6300

 

OCZ’s biggest product announcement at Computex 2015 is the Trion 100 series SSD, which is squarely designed for the cost conscious mainstream consumer. To achieve this, the Trion 100 leverages not only Toshiba’s A19nm TLC, but also an all new Toshiba Alishan controller.

We thought it was strange that OCZ would still use A19nm with 15nm on the horizon, but we were told that A19nm is a more mature, more well understood process than 15nm which is why A19nm was used. Future iterations of the drive will certainly see a shift to 15nm. As for the controller, we weren’t told much about it other than the fact that we’ll be seeing more [...]

Review: Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe SSD 480GB

The Fastest M.2 Drive You Can Buy Today

Earlier this year I visited Kingston at CES, and while it’s typically uncommon with memory companies to unveil a ton of new stuff, Kingston actually had quite the showing with the centerpiece of it all being their new HyperX Predator PCIe SSD. Of course, this wasn’t the first time Kingston had showed off the HyperX Predator. Back at Computex last year, Kingston was extremely excited to show off early prototypes of the HyperX Predator although I had my doubts whether it’d come to market within a reasonable timeframe. The reason for this is because up until the HyperX Predator, Kingston had never been in the PCIe SSD market nor [...]
