$100 32GB SSD, 125MB/s and 70MB/s write


In order
to take on Kingston's 30GB SSDNow Intel based SSD, OCZ has announced its new Onyx SSD based on Indilinx controller which should be the most affordable SSD that ever came from OCZ.

It comes as a 32GB version and features Indilinx Amigos controller, MLC NAND memory chips, 64MB of cache, TRIM support and should provide maximum read and write speeds of up to 125MB/s and 70MB/s.

The Onyx aims to be a perfect system drive and its US $99.99 and €99.90 price tag definitely hits the sweet spot. Although, SSDs are still more expensive than the HDDs, the benefit of an SSD is pretty clear, as they read/write much faster.

The new Onyx SSD has already been listed in couple of retail/e-tails shops and according to our info, it should be available in next one to two weeks, and although it is listed at €99.90 the price might even be lower once other shops get it.

You can find it listed here.
