OCZ introduced their new 1TB SSD today that’s meant to slot into an open PCI-express slot, not hook up via the more traditional SATA.
I know we’ve had a lot of new SSD announcements, lately, but this is a bit different. It’s not a full on one terabyte drive like some announcements we’ve discussed; rather, it’s an internal RAID0 setup that incorporates four of their 256GB SSDs with an addition 256MB of RAM to serve as cache.
Obviously this is a bit more extreme a setup than most people want to go after, and it carries an equivalent price. OCZ expects the unit to retail for between $1500 and $2000 when it goes on sale later this year. The price is certainly out there, especially since if you want speed you could create a RAID array of lower-capacity SSDs and use more traditional rotating magnetic storage for backup and mass data use.
There’s no denying it’s fast, though.
