Vigile writes "When OCZ purchased Indilinx back in March, there were a lot of questions as to what the SSD vendor would do with a controller company that seemed so far behind the performance leaders like Intel and SandForce. Today, with the release of the OCZ Octane, those questions are answered as the new Everest controller is in fact a performance beast. According to the testing done over at PC Perspective, the Octane is able to beat out even Intel's controllers in terms of low latency and high IOs per second, a feat no other controller had done, while also offering average sequential read speeds as high as 505 MB/s! Pricing is very competitive as well with the 256GB model MSRP set at $370 and a pending release of a 1TB 2.5-in model!"
