This is nice for those who don't have a Z68 board. I mean I can buy one of these babies, plug them into my Maximus III GENE, install the software and just watch the performance rise up to the top.
This should be reviewed. I mean OCZ provided us with a solution to get the best of both worlds without having to buy one of those new Z68 boards, that makes OCZ very amazing in my opinion.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I will certainly grab a 128GB OCZ Synapse Cache solid state drive & stick it into an Asus P8P67 WS Revolution & watch it go. I also think that OCZ Synapse solid state drives will out do the Z68 chipset solution. When will these SSDs come out, does anybody know.
@gazd1 Not at the moment.
I wouldn't worry though, I mean things like this that get announced eventually get released. Much like that MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition a few months ago.
Well maybe your right "TaylorKarras". So I will think that I'll put it off then, just for a while though.
It might be sweet to see more round-ups and hands on reviews with some of these newer SSD as they appear.Similar to the 3TB HD roundup.
How about 2 roundups a bang for buck' budget/upgrade SSD round=up and a more mainstream better performance SSD roundup/review as to what's available in the HH lab along with the insights and recommends.
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Great idea @rrplay, I'd enjoy the bang for your buck review. I was just thinking with all of these ocz drives floating around maybe there should be a round-up dedicated to just theirs. Vertex 3 is the king but after that I don't know which one comes in 2nd, 3rd, etc.
On a side note does anyone have an ssd in their console?
Now you're just mashing it!
CPU: e6400 @ 3.2 (H-50'd)MB: MSI p6nRAM: 4G adataGPU: GTS-450 and 8800GTS for PhysxHDD: WD 500G BlackPSU: 620W Corsair Mod.Case: 900-2 with 7 cathodes and AP-15sOS: W7 and Ubuntu
Wow this is awesome stuff for those who are using older motherboards to still get that caching performance. OCZ really seems to be king of the hill when it comes to SSDs and their tech advancement.
I would definitely like to see a comparison of this drive and its software to another comparable OCZ SSD using the Z68 Chipset though I am sure that is already in the works knowing this site
Yes; OCZ seems to rule the SSD's to me, I always hear people comment on the Intels being the most reliable, but I never hear much negative commentary on OCZ's being reliable so I do not really get that. The two manufacturers seem to operate there drive controllers slightly differently which is basically the main difference I see. Anyway another SSD goes on the pile which is going to have to do something to the price line, which is also by the way seemingly getting a few dollars better by the day really already. By black Friday there are going to be some deals to be had at 12:01 AM for sure.
"This is nice, OCZ is always innovating in the SSD market. With the great relationship between HH and OCZ, we will soon have a comparison between this and caching with the Z68 platform. "
This is good news. It would be especially nice in the new Bulldozer system that I plan to build.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
