  • Support for XG3 and VX500 SSDs
  • Recalibration of graphical temperature display
  • Updated Toshiba branding requirements
Known Issues
  • Cannot revert overprovisioning of dynamic disk. If the SSD is formatted as a dynamic disk, the overprovisioning can be increased, but not decreased in SSD Utility. The workaround is to extend the volume in Windows® Disk Management.

Important Notes About SSD Utility
  • Windows® and Linux®: Make sure to set your SATA controller to AHCI mode in the motherboard BIOS if it is not; for instructions see the user documentation for your computer.
  • SSD Utility is required to be run as a system administrator.
  • Internet connection is required for firmware and BIOS update
  • Updating your firmware with the SSD Utility is not supported under Windows® XP
  • Make back-up copies of any data on the SSD that you want to keep; some operations result in the complete loss of data on the SSD (you will be warned if this will occur).

Firmware

There is no new firmware for OCZ ZD6000/6300

There is no new firmware for Z-Drive 6000/6300

For Intrepid 3700

Firmware Release Notes

Version 1.5.1.0 January 22, 2016
Improvements
  • Supercap status flag in SMART Attributes: The SMART Attribute E6h, which indicates the charge status of the Supercap, will have failure information persistent across power cycles. Any time the Supercap status is changed to “0,” that status will be fixed at “0,” even after a power cycle.
  • NAND flash page programming sequence: Every NAND flash page within a block will be programmed in the sequence defined by Toshiba, including full closure of each programmed NAND flash block.
  • NAND flash read retry sequence: The NAND flash read retry sequence has been revised as per Toshiba’s latest app note (M2CMO10-062 v1.1).
  • UART handler: Removed a potential infinite loop scenario in the UART handler.
  • Applying multiple AES keys for data encryption*: Multiple AES keys will be used to encrypt the data prior to its presentation to the scrambler engine to increase data entropy.

    *The implementation of multiple AES keys will only be applied to factory-installed firmware. Firmware updates from 1.5.0.7 will remain configured for a single AES key and will be designated as 1.5.1.0A. For more information about the AES configurations, please contact your OCZ Applications Engineer or submit a support request on https://support.ocz.com/.
Known Issues
  • Compatibility issues with Marvell 9120 chipset running NCQ6 testing
  • Worst-case latency for media access command can exceed 400 ms

For Saber 1000

Firmware Release Notes

Version 1.01 January 15, 2015

This release is being made as a result of several issues found during extended Saber testing. During this time robustness issues were identified and fixed. This firmware has been through a full test cycle to verify the issues outlined in this document.

Improvements

  • Robustness Update: Read corruption has been observed during heavy workloads when exercising deterministic trim. This has now been fixed in firmware.
  • Robustness Update: Corruption observed during end of life uncorrectable error injection testing. This has been root caused and fixed in firmware.
  • Robustness Update: Corruption has been observed whilst injecting large amounts of SATA errors. This is now resolved.
  • Robustness Update: Under extremely heavy workloads (constant writes over the specified program erase threshold / life of the product) there was a possibility of a drive hang due to no opportunity for reclaim / garbage collection to free up spare area for metadata updates. This has now been fixed in firmware.
  • Robustness Update: BSOD could occur during a COM RESET / system restart. Firmware has updated the SATA PHY parameters to correctly indicate its mode and is fixed in this release.
  • Compliance Update: Invalid SMART checksum missing from SMART health check test. Now fixed in in this release of firmware.
  • Performance Update: Latency issues noticed on some hosts (990FX) during constant stress soaks. This is now fixed in firmware.
  • Functional Update: Deterministic trim did not always return zeros for performance assisted sequential reads.
  • Functional Update: In order to prevent unaligned trim accesses, deterministic trim should report to the host that it is 512B logical and 4K physical. This is now fixed in firmware.
  • Functional Update: HIPM (Host Initiated Power Management) can now be manually controlled by the host via future SSD Utility releases.
