OCZ is launching a brand new series of solid state drives today, dubbed the Trion 100. Early prototypes of the drives were shown off at CES a few months back, but the drives are now ready for primetime. We should note that the Trion 100 series breaks some new ground for OCZ.

As we’ve stated on numerous occasions, SSDs were big at this year’s CES, and OCZ was on hand to deliver its own brand of solid-state delight. The company took the opportunity to shows us its brand new JetExpress SSD Controller, the Vector 180 SSD, and the enterprise-level Z-Drive 6000. For starters, let’s talk about the JetExpress SSD Controller, which has been designed for use in both consumer- and enterprise-grade products. The controller natively supports SATA and PCIe/NVMe and will work with M.2, 2.5” SATA, and SFF-8639 form-factors. The 10-channel JetExpress controller also supports both LDPC... Read more...
Sometimes it's the enterprise sector that gets access to all the coolest toys. Certainly that argument could be made today with OCZ's introduction of its wicked fast Z-Drive 6000 NVMe solid state drive (SSD). OCZ unveiled the new drive at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco telling attendees that it will provide industry-leading IOPS per dollar. The Z-Drive 6000 is a native PCIe 3.0 NVMe 1.1 solution in the popular (and easy-to-deploy) 2.5-inch form factor. In addition to offering customers high performance (reported to hit 3GB/s), it also features a hot pluggable SFF-8639 connector... Read more...
AMD is launching a new family of products today, but unless you follow the rumor mill pretty closely, it’s probably not something you’d expect. It’s not a new CPU or APU. And it’s not a new GPU or memory kit either. Well then, “what could it be” you ask? Today, AMD is launching its first line of solid state drives (SSDs), targeted squarely at AMD enthusiasts. Whodathunkit? AMD is calling the new family of drives, the Radeon R7 Series SSD, similar to its popular mid-range line of graphics cards. The new Radeon R7 Series SSDs feature OCZ and Toshiba technology,... Read more...

OCZ is launching a brand-new series of solid state drives today, targeted squarely at budget-conscious, mainstream consumers. The new ARC 100 series doesn’t stray far from its roots, however. The ARC 100 features the very same OCZ Barefoot 3 M10 as the higher-end Vertex 460, but these new drives feature more affordable Toshiba A19nm NAND flash memory. The ARC 100 also ships without any sort of accessory bundle, to further bring costs down. We’ve got a 240GB OCZ ARC 100 in-house and have put it through an array of benchmarks, versus a number of other popular solid state drives... OCZ... Read more...
