OCZ Releases 1TB SSD, The Octane

By David Ponce

We’re sure you’ve heard, but solid state drives are awesome. Low power consumption, smaller footprint and blazing fast speeds. Sadly they have tended to come in generally smaller capacities, which is why the Macbook Air comes with so little storage. But things are slowly changing. OCZ has announced the world’s first SSD drive to hit the 1TB mark. And it looks like it’ll have some very impressive specs:

Indilin Everest control will feature a 512MB DRAM cache, with the SATA 3.0 featuring read speeds of 560MB/s and write speeds of 400MB/s, and the SATA 2.0 with read and write speeds of 275MB/s and 265MB/s respectively.

Of course whenever you’re talking about a product that’s pushing the envelope, it’ll also be pushing the wallet. Although no official price has been released for this drive, you can expect it to be somewhere around $1.20 per GB.
