OCZ Z-Drive R4 & Revo x3 Ready For Computex – Imagine Speeds of 2.7GB/s and 330000 IOPS

Well it had to happen and we said so on the first day that SandForce unveiled its SATA 3 SSD processor.

It seems, that OCZ is ready to unveil their new Revo x3 and Enterprize Z-Drive R4 SSD line at Computex and we are going to be right there to get it out to you first!

The SSD Review is going to Computex!

As shocking as the thought of 2.7GB/s transfer speeds and 330000 IOPS are, we were surprised to see that OCZ is doing very good things with their recent Indilinx purchase in the form of a SATA 6Gbps controller.

Although OCZ is remaining very tight lipped about this picture, we believe it is the new Revo x3 with 4x SF-2582 controllers which means this PCIe card will be the fastest consumer available storage solution available.

They have also come out with what would be considered the first hybrid HDD/SSD PCIe SSD which would mean we would actually see a hard drive integrated into a PCIe card with the SSD as cache!

Hang along from with us through Computex to get the goods on OCZ and just about every other SSD manufacturer that we bump into.
