Cebit 2009: The impressive Z Drive

OCZ has showcased a rather interesting piece of SSD equipment called the Z drive. It packs 1 Terabyte of MLC-based flash memory and some impressive transfer speeds.

According to what OCZ showed so far, the new drive should have maximum read and write speeds of up to 600MB/s and 500MB/s respectively. It uses an x8 PCI-Express interface and comes with a hardware based RAID controller with 256MB of local cache.

Unfortunately, OCZ isn´t talking about the price or the availability date just yet, but in any case this drive still looks impressive. The design of the Z Drive will change as OCZ is working on a different cooling for the drive, and we were told that there will be much talk about this drive.

We will try to get some benchmark scores but for now here are some pictures of it running in a system.
