OCZ has always been at the top of the list when it comes to solid state drive development. A little while ago we took at look at their first SATA 6GB/s drive the Vertex 3. This drive had blazing fast speeds and is considered an enthusiast or even business-level product. OCZ has brought their ever-popular Agility series solid state drive to the SATA 6GB/s standard. The Agility 3 is based on the SandForce SF-2281 controller and boasts read speeds of up to 525MB/s and write speeds up to 500MB/s. Let’s check out this drive and see how it stacks up to the Vertex 3 and other similar drives.
OCZ has recently released its latest power supply offering in the ZX Series of power supplies. These power supplies effectively replace the Z Series power supplies in the Maximum Performance sector and off an 80 PLUS gold certification, a single +12V rail, modular design and an impressive 5 year warranty. 80 PLUS gold certification means this power supply will run 87% efficient at 100% load. 80 PLUS gold is the second highest certification given to power supplies only out-done by the 80 PLUS Platinum certification. Today we will be taking a look at the 850W version of the ZX Series power supply.
OCZ is no stranger to creating some of the fastest solid state drives available. We know this from our reviews of the original RevoDrive and the Vertex 3 drive. Today OCZ has sent us their X2 version of the RevoDrive, which is to be faster and available in larger capacities. It boasts max speeds of 740MB/s read and 720MB/s write and capacities of up to 960GB. If you are a person that always needs to have some of the fastest components available in your system then the RevoDrive X2 is for you. Let’s see if it will become the fastest solid state drive we have tested to date!
Only a little while ago we visited OCZ at CES and they showed us some of their upcoming solid state drives. These new drives feature the SandForce SF-2200 controller and boast blistering fast speeds. OCZ has been at the forefront of SSD technology and this year they are going to be releasing a ton of new drives. One of the first drives based on the new SandForce SF-2200 controller is the Vertex 3. This drive has a max read of 550MB/s and max write of 525MB/s! Those are some of the fastest advertised speeds we have seen in a consumer drive! OCZ was nice enough to send us an engineering sample version of the drive with BETA firmware on it, so let’s take a look!
OCZ has been one of the big players in the solid state drive market since the first consumer drives were available. We have seen them really push the technology to the limit over the past year, but they are also still concerned about you the customer. That is why they have released 3.5-inch versions of both their Vertex 2 and Agility 2 solid state drives. The 3.5-inch form factor means you do not need an adapter and OCZ claims this design is a lower cost per GB. Let’s take a look at this newly designed 3.5-inch version of the Vertex 2.
OCZ had quite a lot to show us at CES this year. We all know them for making quality memory, solid state drives and power supplies. It seems OCZ is updating each one of these product lines with new more powerful products! They even had a solid state drive in one of their demo’s that broke 1GB/s in ATTO! So without further ado lets see what OCZ has for you in 2011.
Over the past year we have seen a plethora of solid state drives. All of them are pretty much the same besides the memory chips used and the controller. All of them have been the smaller 2.5-inch form factor with the typical SATA connections. Today we have something a little different, how about a portable solid state drive. OCZ calls this drive the Enyo and it uses a super fast USB 3.0 connection. So you get all of the durability advantages of an internal solid state drive but you also get easy portability. Let’s take a look…
Over the past year we have looked at quite a few solid state drives. The big thing this year was the introduction of the SandForce controller into just about every different manufacturer’s drives. OCZ is one such manufacturer, but they have done something different with RevoDrive. The RevoDrive is not an ordinary 2.5-inch SATA drive we are used to seeing, it is a a 4x PCI-Express expansion card with 2 SandForce controllers configured in a RAID 0 setup for extremely fast transfer speeds. Let’s take a look at this drive and see if it can blow away the competition.
