Combining high-speed data transfer rates with
record-breaking access times, OCZ Octane SSDs are designed to provide a superior
user experience and improved application performance. Octane leverages the
cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform and is optimized for the complete
spectrum of file types and sizes, with proprietary page mapping algorithms
mirroring real world conditions across a wide range of applications.
The Octane series also includes advanced features unique
to Indilinx, including latency reduction technology to enhance system
responsiveness and enable instant-on boot-ups, and proprietary NDurance
technology to increase the lifespan of the NAND flash memory and minimize
performance degradation. In addition, Octane drives support AES and automatic
encryption to secure critical data, bringing unique enterprise features within
the reach of enthusiasts. Octane SSDs also deliver the energy efficiency,
durability, and reliability that traditional hard drives cannot provide.
High performance SSD architecture The Octane series
leverages the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest platform, which combines a
dual-core CPU, SATA 6Gbps interface, and support for the latest, most
advanced NAND flash memory technology available. It delivers faster
performance with compressed data such as MP3, JPG, RAW, PSD and OS X
software, and strong performance at low queue depths (QD 1 ¨C 3). The
Octane's proprietary page mapping algorithms ensure superior performance
across all file sizes and mixed workloads. The Octane series also includes a
number of advanced features unique to Indilinx, including innovative latency
reduction technology, enabling both read and write access times as low as
0.06ms and 0.09ms respectively, the lowest of any commercially available SSD.
This enhances application responsiveness and enables features such as "fast
boot" in consumer applications.
Enhanced performance and endurance over the long term
Octane SSDs come equipped with Indilinx's proprietary NDurance technology,
increasing the lifespan of the NAND flash memory, ensuring the most
consistent and reliable performance as well as minimizing performance
degradation even after the drive's storage capacity is highly utilized.
Efficient NAND Flash management including dynamic and static wear-leveling,
and background garbage collection ensures close to ¡®fresh-out-of-the-box¡¯
performance even after continual use. In addition, Octane series drives
support AES and automatic encryption to secure critical data.
TRIM SUPPORT The Octane SSDs feature support for the
Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need
and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.

Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
For now it looks like the Octane is a good solution for typical desktop users, even at its 128GB capacity. Performance in those tests is once again competitive with SandForce drives. It's in write heavy workloads that the reduction in number of available NAND die penalizes the Octane.
