OCZ Endeavors to Bring Affordable SSDs

Digitimes reports that at aside from it’s new 3.5-inch Colossus SSD, OCZ is also exhibiting a lineup of what is says competitively priced SSDs in Taipei. Among these is the company’s Vertex series (250 MB/s read and 180 MB/s write), now costing about US$3.42/GB, along with its new Summit SSD (220 MB/s read/write, 128MB onboard cache) aimed at high-end gaming, professional desktops and notebooks, and small-scale server PCs.

According to Fudzilla OCZ also quietly updated its site yesterday to include a new series which will apparently be a performance part for the mainstream segment of the market in 30 GB, 60 GB and 120 GB capacities. No pricing yet but the affordability of the line is going to be its big selling point.

How many of you currently own an SSD and how much did you pay for it? Let us know!

  • The Intel-m series are priced at about $4/GB so $3.42 is a pleasant drop if we're going to be guaranteed similar performance to the SSD that's been outperforming everything else on the market.

  • I can't see the justification in price....gaming doesn't require anything faster that a velociraptor and the price/size differences aren't making ssd's very attractive yet.
