Solid-state drives are energy efficient and speedy, too speedy in fact for today’s storage interfaces.
That’s why OCZ is taking a different approach to its Ibis line of high-performance SSDs with a High Speed Data Link (HSDL) connector and PCIe adapter card. What are the results? According to this review at PC Perspective, the results are very good indeed, trouncing OCZ’s own products and giving the competition a run for its money. If there’s one downside, it’s HSDL. The interface has proven benefits, but does the world need another storage standard?
