OCZ Technology Group
has announced its Vector SSD series, which is the first series built completely in-house for full design control.
The new Vector SSD series features the next-generation Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller, which, the company claims offers faster file transfers, boot-ups and a better overall storage experience.
Those interested in the series can choose between 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities. The series offers a read bandwidth of up to 550 MB/s, a write bandwidth of up to 530 MB/s and a random read performance of up to 100,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS).
As far as design goes, the Vector SSD series has a 7mm alloy housing that fits computers of any size. It's also equipped with a 3.5 inch desktop adapter bracket.
The Barefoot 3 controller features flash management tools for adapting to increasing NAND vulnerabilities and comes with a five-year warranty that guarantees 20GB host writes per day for five years.
“The development of the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller architecture is a crowning achievement in our company’s history, being our first controller silicon and firmware completely designed in-house from start to finish using all of the OCZ technology development teams,” said Ralph Schmitt, CEO for OCZ Technology. “These are the first SSD products delivered under the new OCZ and leverages cutting-edge controller technology to deliver a groundbreaking level of sustained performance and reliability for customers seeking a superior SSD for their high performance computing applications.”
Pricing and availability for the new SATA III-based Vector SSD series hasn't been released.
Earlier this month, OCZ Technology announced that it was
reducing its global workfoce by 28 percent
and discontinuing 150 product variations that it offers in order to become more profitable.
