OCZ Technology, a leading supplier of memory products, has announced its new ATV-series flash memory drives that offer extreme durability, thus, provide protection to valuable data. The new lineup compliments the well-known OCZ Rally-series that comes in steel-made enclosure.
“The OCZ ATV series is designed to operate under harsh environments with its shock and water-proof design. Besides its all-terrain nature, we also built this device with all the latest storage technology to make it truly cater to the most performance-demanding power users with its fast read/write speeds,” states Jacky Huang, vice president of product management at OCZ Technology Group.
OCZ’s ATV flash memory drives come in ruggedized “thread” housing made of high-quality rubber. OCZ promises that the new USB drives are 100% weatherproof storage solutions that can keep data safe in any conditions, even fully submerged in water. The direct competitor for OCZ’s ATV is Corsair Memory’s Voyager solutions that have been available on the market for several years.
The OCZ ATV flash drives are initially available in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities. OCZ ATV flash drives can provide read speed of up to 30MB/s and record speed of up to 14MB/s, whereas OCZ ATV Turbo, which is available in 4GB capacity, can feature 35MB/s read speed and 30MB/s write speed.
