Default OCZ buys Indilinx

OCZ buys Indilinx, probably has designs on building its own SSD controllers -- Engadget

Can't say I expected something like this. Although if they continue to use other companies controllers as well as offer Indilinx controllers to other OEMs then it really won't have much of an affect on their SSDs.

Is Indilinx doing anything interesting or are they pretty behind right now?

Howdy,

OCZ will continue to use Sandforce components and INDILINX will continue selling parts to other manufacturer, that article mentions....
