New SSDs, Thunderbolt SSD coming


Although we honestly did not doubt it, OCZ's SSD lineup at Computex, which kicks off in a few days on June 5th, may end up being quite impressive. According to OCZ, we will see a whole set of new SSDs, including enterprise ones based on Everest 2 controller, new one based on Kilimanjaro controller, as well as a first external SSD that features Thunderbolt interface.

When it comes to enterprise market solutions, OCZ plans to show the new Intrepid SSD, simply an enterprise version of Vertex 4, since it is based on the same Everest 2 controller with SATA 6Gbps interface. According to first details, Intrepid 3 should provide over 100k IOPS and feature highly improved reliability. In addition to the Intrepid 3, OCZ is also expected to showcase a new Z-Drive R5 based on the Kilimanjaro controller co-developed with Marvell. The Z-Drive R5 will, of course, feature a PCI-Express interface and is also a part of enterprise lineup.

When it comes to consumer parts, well sort of, OCZ is expected to show its "Lightfoot" external SSD solution that will feature Thunderbolt interface with up to 10Gb/s data transfer rate. Of course, this one will most likely be aimed at professionals with deep pockets rather than mere mortals, but it will certainly be interesting to at least see it. According to OCZ, it will be available in capacities starting at 128GB and all the way up to 1TB.

In any case, OCZ's Computex lineup certainly sounds interesting and we are looking forward to see how well these announced SSDs actually perform.
