|After revealing its plans at CES, OCZ is now ready to reveal its first SATA II or SATA 3.0 Gbps solid state drives. Embracing a 2.5-inch forma factor, the upcoming flashy drives weight only 77 grams and offer low access and low power consumption, a MTBF (mean time before failure) of 2 million hours and high shock resistance.
"There are many benefits of solid state drive technology over traditional disk drives including superior speed, reliability, and power savings," commented Alex Mei, Executive VP and CMO, OCZ Technology Group. "Our newest SATA II drives are designed to further extend the advantages of this technology offering enhanced performance for high-end mobile solutions."
Of course, no spec list is complete without transfer speeds and for OCZ's drives they are of 120 MB/s and 100 MB/s when reading and writing respectively. Equipped with speedy but more expensive SLC NAND chips, the SSDs have a one year warranty and will be hitting the stores in the coming weeks. The 32GB model is set to cost $600 while the 64GB drive will have a price tag of just under $1100.
