Deal of the Day: Indilinx Everest controller


We stumbled upon a rather sweet deal in Europe where OCZ's Petrol SSD sells for as low as €0,50 per GB. Of course, OCZ Petrol is not a high-end SSD, but it is still way faster than any HDD.

Mindfactory.de, one of pretty good retailers/e-tailers in Europe is currently listing the 256GB OCZ Petrol SSD for as low as €129.99. Back when it was initially launched and available in Europe, it was selling for a rather steep €154,90 for the 128GB version, but now it looks like a great deal.

In case you missed it, the OCZ Petrol uses Indilinx Everest controller and it is available in 64, 128, 256 and 512GB capacities. It has sequential read and write speeds of up to 370 MB/s and 250MB/s with up to 34K random read IOPS. The difference between the Octane and Petrol is in the choice of NAND flash chips, while Octane uses synchronous NAND, Petrol sticks with cheaper asynchronous NAND flash chips.

If you are wondering about the rest of the lineup, the 64GB one is currently listed in Europe with a lowest price set at €53,90 for the 64GB one, €86,71 for the 128GB model and €449,98 for the top 512GB one.

You can check out the rest of the listings here and you can find the Mindfactory.de one here.
