Always looking to push SSDs to the next level of performance, OCZ has rolled out their newest Vector line of SSDs. This is OCZ’s first major release that is completely captive, except for the NAND flash. According to OCZ; quality, reliability, and stability were the number one goal in mind when the Vector series was designed.
Armed with OCZ’s own in-house Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller and the promise of groundbreaking performance, we’ll run it through our suite of tests and find out first hand if it lives up to its advanced billing! I’m sure our readers are very familiar with the OCZ brand, so we won’t go into great detail here. Below is a small snippet about OCZ and what they are about.
“Founded in 2002, San Jose, California-based OCZ Technology Group, Inc. has built on its expertise in high-speed memory to become a dominant player in the manufacturing and distribution of solid state drives (SSDs), a disruptive, game-changing technology that is replacing traditional rotating magnetic hard disk drives (HDDs). SSDs are faster, more reliable, run cooler, and use significantly less power than the HDDs used in the majority of computers today. In addition to SSD technology, OCZ also offers high performance components for computing devices and systems, including enterprise class power management products and industrial power accessories.”
