OCZ TECHNOLOGY has released a 3.5-inch SSD that packs a terabyte of data.
Called Colossus, it is designed to boost desktop and workstation performance for people who need really fast storage drives and shift a hell of a lot of data. It is supposed to be about twice as fast as the Intel SSD drives with a read rate of up to 260 MBps, write of up to 260MBps and sustained write of up to 230MBps.
Eugene Chang, VP of product management at OCZ Technology Group, said the drive manages to go like a banshee because it has an internal RAID 0 architecture.
This also makes it quite good at handling the little tasks such as emailing, web browsing, and file transfer.
However we suspect that it will be in corporate servers where most Colossus SSDs will find their homes. There they can cut back bottlenecks suffered by mechanical hard drive infrastructures and reduce power consumption as well as both heat and noise.
The OCZ Colossus SSD drives are available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB units and come with three year warrantees and dedicated technical support.
One site shows a price of $3,572 for the top end 1TB drive, which sounds about right. µ
