OCZ Technology Launches New Enterprise​-Class Intrepid 3000 Series SSDs

OCZ_Intrepid_3000

OCZ has had some bad news lately with the filing for bankruptcy but the Toshiba buyout may helped the company coming back even stronger. The bad news does not prevent the company from releasing a new product. Today, OCZ has released a new Intrepid 3000 Series enterprises SSD. The Intrepid 3000 uses OCZ Everest controller based on Marvell 88SS9187 controller (same as in Vertex 4) paired with OCZ’s own proprietary firmware. The drive has a rated 520 MB/s for sequential read (128K blocks), 470 MB/s sequential write (128K blocks), 91,000 IOPS random read and 40,000 IOPS random writes. The number reported here may seemed a bit lower than what we used to but it is based on the steady state which the drive is writing, erasing and re-writing data repeatedly over the full capacity of the rive. So these are the worst case scenario number. For the enterprise market, data ... Read More »

Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Brown Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (GK-OSMIUM BRN)

Gigabyte_Osmium

Gamers love their mechanical keyboards and have their own preferred switch. The distinctive clicky feel from a mechanical keyboard offers gamers superior feedback where very little actuation force is needed to register the key is ideal for the repeated action and the multiple press in games. In many FPS shooter games, that milliseconds of response time can be a matter of life and death. So gamers swear by their mechanical keyboard.     When Gigabyte first launched the Aivia Osmium keyboard, it came with the Cherry Red MX switch that we had reviewed a while back. While the linear feedback from the Red switch offers smooth feedback that is ideal for gaming, it may not be the best if you use the PC for more than just repeated tapping action in games. If you also use PC for typing, the Cherry Red MX maybe too sensitive. Or if you are ... Read More »
