New OCZ SSD Firmware improves Octane performance

/ 7 years ago

OCZ’s performance level solid state drive line, known as Octane, has been delivered a rather welcomed firmware fix. The fix which takes the firmware version from 1.12 to 1.13 brings with it a substantial performance increase in the IOPs that the Octane drives can now sustain. All of the Octane drives are SATA III so run of the latest NAND flash which is still relatively young. Much like we see the performance of graphics mature as drivers do solid state drives work in the same way. The new firmware increases the efficiency of the Indilinx controller and NAND flash memory chips allowing the following improvements in the IOPs:

As you can see on the 128GB and 256GB models there is doubling in performance whilst the 512GB drive has about an 80% improvement. You can pick up the latest firmware update for your Octane SSD here, OCZ recommends not doing the latest firmware update unless you have the required experience to do so.
