OCZ Technology Announces 1TB Z-Drive PCI-Express SSD for Enthusiasts

OCZ Technology today unveiled the Z-Drive, a PCI-Express based SSD solution designed to meet the stringent demands of enthusiast computing environments and high-end workstations.

First debuted at Cebit 2009 in Germany, the Z-Drive is the latest premium solid state storage solution from OCZ.

"Designed for ultra high performance consumers, the Z-Drive takes the SATA bottleneck out of the equation by employing the ultra fast PCI-Express architecture with a RAID controller and four Vertex controllers configured in four-way RAID 0 within an all-in-one product, making this solution ideal for applications that put a premium on both storage performance and maximum capacity," said Eugene Chang, Vice President of Product Management at the OCZ Technology.

The Z-Drive is based on PCI Express architecture that breaks through the performance barriers previously found with SATA interface. Offering an enthusiast grade storage upgrade from traditional hard disc drives, OCZ?s Z-Drive utilizes a combined 256MB of local cache and an onboard RAID controller.

These drives feature speeds up to 510MB/s read and 480MB/s write, all while delivering lowered power consumption, ultra-fast data access, durability, and lower cost per ownership compared to conventional hard drives when factoring in the need for multiple drives and a separate RAID controller. In configurations of 250GB, 500GB, and massive 1TB capacities and priced aggressively to be within reach of high end consumers, the OCZ Z-Drive offers ample room to create a high performance storage array for enthusiast high performance systems.
