New Indilinx controller ready
OCZ is obviously ready for the upcoming Computex 2011 and it looks like it will be an interesting one, at least as far as OCZ is concerned. OCZ apparently plans to show its new Indilinx SATA 6.0Gbps controller, some of the new RevoDrive and Z-Drive PCI-Express based SSDs and a new HDD/SSD hybrid drive.

There has been some talk regarding the new Indilinx controller and it looks like it is finally ready to show up, with Computex 2011 being a perfect place for it. All we need now is to see some performance numbers and we are quite sure that OCZ will shed some light during the show. In addition to the new controller, OCZ will also show the full lineup of its new PCI-Express based SSDs that will include the new VCA enabled Z-Drive R4 capable of delivering up to 2.7GB/s and 330,000 4KB random write IOPS performance, as well as the new RevoDrive 3, a next-gen bootable PCI-Express SSD for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations.

Last but not the least is OCZ first hybrid HDD/SSD PCIe solution that will also be a part of the RevoDrive lineup. It appears that it will use high speed NAND flash chips for cache paired up with a standard HDD. Basically, it sounds a lot like Intel's recently introduced Smart Response Technology, but without the need for the Z68 platform in order to work.

Computex 2011 show in Taipei is less then a week away so we won't have to wait too long for some extra details regarding OCZ's lineup.
