So far the vast majority of solid-state drives (SSDs) came in 1.8” or 2.5” form-factors that are common in notebooks, but not popular in desktops. For many consumers, the incompatibility of form-factors did not allow to install an SSD into desktop. In order to enable desktops and workstations with solid-state drives, OCZ Technology Group is preparing its Colossus SSD for 3.5” bays.

“We continue to push the envelope in SSD technology with the introduction of a one terabyte 3.5” solid-state drive designed specifically for desktop gaming and workstations,” said Alex Mei, chief marketing officer of the OCZ Technology Group.

At Computex Taipei 2009 trade-show OCZ Technology demonstrated its Colossus solid-state drive in 3.5” form-factor with enhanced performance. OCZ Colossus will be available in 500GB and 1TB capacities and with up to 265MB/s read speeds. It should be noted that in order to achieve rather high performance, Colossus uses internal RAID 0 structure.

OCZ Colossus, as one of the first 3.5” solid-state drives, is likely to become popular among performance enthusiasts who want to install SSD into their systems, but have no intention to use special brackets to do so.

The Colossus SSDs will be available this summer, but the price of the novelties is still to be determined.
