CES 2011 Coverage


OCZ Technology

OCZ had some really interesting products to show off at this year’s CES. In OCZ style, the company had some speed crushing products on display. Some of the most notable drives are the OCZ RevoDrive and the ZDrive Series, which run in PCI-Express slots designed to give you the most bandwidth available. Another unique set that OCZ had on display was the IBIS, which uses a proprietary HSDL (High Speed Data Link) interface to deliver 2-4Gbps of total bandwidth. Along with these drives, there are also the current and upcoming 2.5" and 3.5" drives in both SATA II and SATA 3/SAS speeds.





What would an OCZ showdown be without its memory lines? There were several new additions to the lineup that are sure to get your mouth watering. There is something for everyone with the Blade 2, Platinum XTE and Gold XTE kits. These kits are available in both dual and triple channel and optimized for both AMD and Intel platforms. The fourth set, which is plugged into an ASRock P67 Fatal1ty series board, is a DDR3 set of OCZ Fatal1ty memory optimized for running on that specific board.


Finishing up the OCZ showcase was its PC Power and Cooling line of power supplies. The lines included the Silencer 760W and 910W, the ZS 600W and 700W and the higher end ZX 1000W and 1250W power supplies.


To show off the true power of a few of its drives, OCZ had live displays that showed off the sheer awesome power. The ZDrive R3 boasts read speeds of up to 1000MB/s and write speeds of up to 970MB/s and, sure enough, they proved it with well over 1GB/s on both the read and write ATTO tests. The ZDrive R3 uses four SandForce 1565 controllers, which is why it performs so well. Another test drive on show was the OCZ Vertex 3 Pro, which uses a SATA III interface and the SandForce SF-2582 controller for over 500MB/s read and write speeds on a single drive.
