OCZ Vector PCIe - New Photo's and Info
A day or two ago we already reported that OCZ will be releasing the new OCZ Vector PCIe soon. We received some more info and photo's on this upcoming product. The PCIe x4 (gen 2) slot based storage unit will be based on two controllers and will become available in 240, 480 and 960 GB versions. It's read/write performance is stated to b deliver 1000 MB/sec and random IO perf wise you are looking at a unit that can manage 140,000 IOPS.
The storage unit will be based on two Indilinx Barefoot 3 controllers. The Vector PCIe SSD Series is oriented towards power users as well as content creation and workstation applications where storage performance can bottleneck workloads.
The Vector PCIe SSD Series provides 4 lanes of PCIe Gen 2 throughput in full-height and half-height formats. OCZ specifies drive endurance at 100GB host writes per day for 5 years for the new PCIe SSDs. Pricing has not been set just yet but we could expect this SSD to run somewhere in the area of $1.40 to $1.70 per GB on release, depending on capacity.Anyway have a peek at the photo's and the a couple of screenshots from the slidedeck.
