Eurocom. You know the name. They're one of the most prominent gaming notebook makers on the planet, and their machines are generally larger and faster than anything else out. The company has just announced yet another innovation, with the launch of RAID 10 notebooks that utilize the quick 480GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, a drive powered by the SandForce... Read more...
We never seem to tire of new SSD technologies. The storage subsystem has long been the primary bottleneck with respect to general computer system responsiveness. And as a result, the explosion of Solid State Drives in the market is indicative of the ground-breaking performance gains the average SSD offers over traditional hard...

As we've noted more than once here before, as NAND Flash technologies evolve, SATA will go the way of the dino. It's not going to happen over night but like its old, spinning hard drive counterpart, the writing is on the wall. The market needs new higher speed interfaces with lower overhead and more direct attachment to native system interfaces.... Read more...

Got memory? OCZ does, and plenty of it. And now they've got even more that requires even less power to operate. The company has just introduced next generation ultra-low voltage and extreme-low voltage DDR3 memory kits, with the new solutions offering power savings along with the stability that OCZ is known for. Both of these new kits are... Read more...
We just spent some time trudging through the Technology Showcase at IDF 2010 and came across a hot product in the Sandforce booth. As most of you probably know, Sandforce produces the controllers used in some of the hottest solid state drives currently on the market. And you probably also know that OCZ has worked very closely with Sandforce... Read more...
We are back again this week with a brand new video podcast to talk about some recent developments in the hardware and technology scenes. Topics in this episode of the HotHardware Video Podcast include the coverage from the Global Technology Conference, Origin’s insane PC / Xbox 360 hybrid, the AMD FirePro 9800 professional workstation...

SSD manufacturers have been energetically rolling out new high-end, high-capacity products based around updated Indilinx, SandForce, or Marvell controllers, while simultaneously also introducing smaller SSDs with better performance and lower prices than we saw with first-generation products. As SSDs become more popular and economical, we're... Read more...
It's hard to remember that before the advent of SSDs, storage performance was a rather tepid topic. Save for the introduction of occasional new features like NCQ, hard drives continued along a mostly predictable path of rising capacities and (slightly) higher performance. If you wanted top-end performance, you bought a WD VelociRaptor or constructed... Read more...
It's not easy out there for pre-fab PC makers. You're competing against giants like Dell, HP and Lenovo, and you're trying to sway consumers to purchase your brand even though you aren't running TV ads every half-hour. But when you look at a company like Alienware, you know it's still possible to hold an edge if you carve out your own niche.... Read more...
In need of new memory? There's never enough is there? OCZ Technology doesn't think so, and if you've been thinking of adding a bit of headroom to your main gaming rig, there's now a new option to consider. OCZ has just introduced the world's fastest high-density 4GB DDR3 modules operating at 2133MHz, perfect for those... Read more...
OCZ Technology Unveils the RevoDrive with up to 80,000 IOPS, the World’s Fastest Consumer Solid State Drive OCZ Increases Performance but not the Price of High-End PCIe Solid State Storage   SAN JOSE, CA - June 29, 2010 - OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and... Read more...
Shortly after publishing a recent 5-way SSD round-up, a number of the manufacturers that employ Sandforce controllers in their products released updated drives that offered more usable capacity to end users. The first wave of SF-1200 based drives to hit the scene had about 22% of their flash memory over-provisioned for cache purposes, wear-leveling,... Read more...
It is hard to believe that almost two years has passed since we first rounded-up some of the first solid state drive offerings for the PC. Since that time, the landscape has changed dramatically. Capacities have increased somewhat, but performance has been improved significantly. Many early solid sate drives suffered from terrible stuttering... Read more...
Here's something that's not so uncommon any more: a solid state drive. SSDs are everywhere, and they're growing in popularity. But most of them are of the 2.5" variety, with very few being offered in the 3.5" (desktop) and 1.8" (portable media player) form factors. But OCZ Technology isn't one to sit around while some other company takes advantage... Read more...
OCZ revealed a new enterprise line of solid state hard drives. The new Deneva Series uses Sandforce's 1500 SSD processor with MLC and eMLC to offer the performance required by enterprise storage environments. The Sandforce-based Deneva family has a few features and options that are not available on OCZ's consumer SSD offerings. More specifically,... Read more...
Although we previously covered several hot topics from Computex, there is still a lot to talk about. A few days ago, we showed you the first dual GPU Fermi videocard from Galaxy, revealed the latest PCI Express SSD from OCZ called the Revo Drive, and exposed you to the monstrous HD 5970 Eyefinity 12 from PowerColor. In addition, we gathered... Read more...
Every year, the largest computer exhibition in Asia is held in Taipei, Taiwan over the course of five days. Computex is huge, and spans several buildings throughout the city. Only CeBIT, held in Germany, can claim to attract more visitors and businesses to their event. But it makes sense that Computex has the pull that it does, since... Read more...
OCZ Technology is one of the companies really pushing SSD technology forward, and it seems like every month or two they have another one headed to production. Today, the company is announcing not one, but two new solid state drives, both of which are aimed primarily at use in the enterprise. But oftentimes, enterprise... Read more...
OCZ announced the StealthXStream 2 Power Supply Series. This series has been redesigned to offer higher efficiencies and a quieter operation. The StealthXStream 2 is designed for use in high end systems and offers enough power for dual-GPU and CPU platforms. The PSUs convert up to 85% of AC to DC power at typical loads. The StealthXStream... Read more...
Consumer-grade SSDs are fast, without a doubt, but those who demand extreme performance at any cost, or perhaps for enterprise applications, the fastest SSDs on the market are PCI Express-based, like the ioDrive and ioXtreme from Fusion-io, for example. OCZ also offers their Z-Drive with similar performance, though... Read more...
