Founded in 2002, San Jose, California-based OCZ Storage Solutions got their start in the RAM memory market. In 2007, they decided to expand their product line and acquired PC Power & Cooling, whose products included power supplies. When the solid state drive technology started to emerge, OCZ was there too. OCZ was purchased by Toshiba in 2013, which was looking to enter the SSD market in a big way. The Vector line is the new drives to receive Toshiba’s touch.
The Trion 150 uses the Toshiba’s own Indilinx Barefoot 3 M00 controller, a slightly over-clocked version of the Barefoot 3 M10 controller used in OCZ’s in the ARC and Vertex 460(s) drives. The Trion 150 uses Toshiba’s 15nm TLC NAND Flash. Toshiba states that the new Trion delivers “increased real-world performance” the earlier version. The Trion 100 we reviewed a while back offered good performance, but seemed like it could use just a touch more get go. It looks like the Trion 150 has just that get go.
Like the Trion 100 before it, the Trion 150 Also comes in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB sizes.
