OCZ Technology, a leading supplier of random access memory modules and flash-based product, on Wednesday unveiled its latest solid-state drives (SSDs) with performance that by far exceeds the company’s previous achievements. The new SSDs are mainly aimed at passionate gamers who demand the absolutely highest performance possible.

Available in 32GB and 64GB capacities, OCZ’s new Serial ATA-300 SSDs offer premier speeds of 120MB/s read and 100MB/s write, considerably higher compared to previous-generation SSDs from the company. Preceding lineup of OCZ’s SSDs “only” could boast with 58MB/s read speed and 35MB/s write speed. The new solid-state drives come in 2.5” form-factor suitable for notebooks, but many of such drives are likely to find themselves in high-end desktops eventually.

“There are many benefits of solid state drive technology over traditional disk drives including superior speed, reliability, and power savings. Our newest SATA II drives are designed to further extend the advantages of this technology offering enhanced performance for high-end mobile solutions,” said Alex Mei, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at OCZ Technology Group.

OCZ has not unveiled the pricing of the new solid-state drives, however, the leading-edge SSDs are unlikely to be truly affordable. It is highly likely that the 64GB model will cost about $1000, which is hardly a price-point of a mainstream storage device. Nevertheless, given performance factor, some enthusiasts may adopt the new drives.

No mention of *real* performance stats, such as Seek, Access, etc.? The obsession with transfer rate is unreal...
