PCIe SSD promises blistering performance

Back in January, Toshiba completed its acquisition of OCZ. At the same time that purchase was completed, OCZ rolled out its first SSD aimed at consumer systems under its new owner. OCZ has now unveiled its second SSD to be released under new ownership.
The new Z-Drive 4500 series is PCIe-based and uses 19nm MLC NAND flash. The ZDrive 4500 can be had in 800GB, 1.6TB, and 3.2TB capacities.

Each of the models in the range is integrated with new Windows Accelerator software from OCZ. This is a flash management and caching solution for Windows Server applications. The software allows an IT manger to deploy the SSDs as a local flash volume, a flash cache for HDD volumes, or a combo of both.
The SSD uses the OCZ virtualized Controller Architecture and LSI SandForce SF-2582 processor. OCZ promises maximum read bandwidth of up to 2900 MB/s and write bandwidth of up to 2200 MB/s. The SSD will also have 252k IOPS performance.
The drives are available to purchase now and will come backed with a 5-year warranty.
