Today will examine the Agility 2, a new 60GB SSD model that promises to deliver high performance while maintaining an affordable storage solution.
The 2.5" SSD drive is using the SF-1200 controller and it is based on a new architecture. SandForce’s architecture attempts to solve the issue of NAND write amplification by simply writing less to the drive through compression/deduplication techniques.
OCZ claims that the Agility 2 excels in both
sequential and random read/write rates, featuring 4k random writes up to
10,000 IOPS to give a performance edge over the previous generation.
The Agility 2
is using affordable
MLC flash memory (34nm NAND), it has a SATA 3Gb/s interface and
features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan
The drive comes backed by a
3-year warranty and 2 million hour MTBF.
