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 »

ZT-70503-10P_image2

While the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is a blazing fast card there of course always is room for more speed. This is something Zotac can deliver with their latest AMP!-card; the GeForce GTX 780 Ti AMP! Edition. The AMP-Edition cards, some that we have reviewed earlier (Zotac GTX Titan AMP Edition, Zotac GeForce GTX760 AMP! Edition) are overclocked from the start meaning more speed without risking loosing the warranty or getting an unstable card. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti AMP! Edition is overclocked from the stock 875/928 Mhz (base/boost) to 1006/1072 MHz for the GPU core and the memory is overclocked to 7200 MHz from the stock 7000 MHz. The recommended price for the card is 6399 SEK (Sweden) and £575. We currently have this beast in our lab and am busy reviewing it so stay tuned for some more info soon on how it performs. Until then you have to make ... Read More »
