Introduction, Specifications, and Packaging
OCZ purchased Indilinx back in March and we are just now seeing the first new controller from the combined company, the Everest.
A few months back, OCZ acquired Indilinx. Ever since, we’ve been wondering if the next generation Indilinx offering could stand up to the competition, who has made leaps and bounds since the first generation SSD controllers were released.

- 256GB Max Performance
- 512GB Max Performance
- 1TB Max Performance
Here’s a basic block diagram of the new Everest controller from Indilinx. All of the usual bits are present, of particular note being the ability to drive 8 channels, with each channel rated at 4-way. This should mean an Everest could theoretically drive 32 flash chips.
The Octane comes packaged like many other SSD’s out there, with a few extra presents like the "My SSD is faster than your HDD" sticker seen with Vertex units.
