This is the first indilinx controller to come out of OCZ following their buyout of the company.

I cant find any specs online, nor reviews, so this is brand new. Anandtech has a blurb much like this one (seen here) where he states he asked for more info, so we're not the only one wondering whats up with this controller.

I, for one, welcome our OCZ overlords...as long as they dont pull a SandForce BSOD fiasco on us...lol

Yep my google-fu turned up nothing useful prior to my post too.

Need a bigger SSD for my laptop and I want to stay far far away from Sandforce for the time being (even if they have a new magic firmware).

The stats look good, but what looks even better is the pricing of the drives being closer to the $1/Gb mark. Heck ... how many peaple have wanted higher sized drives ... a 1 TB for $1k is nuts !!

Also think about this as well, raid 0 preformance for a couple of these slung together ... Would be curious to see 2 of these 120's raid 0'ed vs agility/vertex 3's.

Any word on, if OCZ will be sending some OCTANE to HWC for a review?

I'm quite curious as to what changes OCZ has made to the controller. Let's hope it can compete!
