Closer Look at the Drive:
OCZ Octane is similar to most OCZ drives. It comes with a black and greyish metallic case with a one sticker on the front and a couple on the back. The front one is a really high quality sticker with drives name and “Indilinx Infused” logo. Back of the drive has a sticker stating some certification along with some dos and some don’ts. There is another sticker with barcode, product number and serial number. The little sticker on the left corner is for warranty.
OCZ Octane uses standard SATA power and data connectors. It uses SATA III 6 Gb/s interface but it’s also backward compatible with SATA II 3 Gb/s.
It comes in a standard 2.5” form factor with mounting holes at bottom and sides.
OCZ is using Intel’s 25nm 2-bit-per-cell synchronous MLC NAND. 128 GB model has 16 of them with each having storage capacity of 8 GB. There are two RAM chips of 256 MB each totalling 512 MB which works as cache because the Indilinx Everest controller doesn’t have any real-time compression algorithm.
