OCZ Technology Group, a leading supplier of advanced memory modules and solid-state drives, on Wednesday announced its new SSD, which it calls the most cost-efficient flash drive based on single-level cell (SLC) memory. SLC flash not only provides extreme performance, but also excellent reliability.

“Though SLC has traditionally been more expensive than MLC flash there are both performance and lifespan advantages to SLC based solid state drives, it is for consumers that require the extended reliability of single level cell flash that we are now introducing the Agility EX series of SSDs. The Agility EX offers consumers the most cost effective SLC solid state storage solution on the market,” said Eugene Chang, vice president of product management at the OCZ Technology Group.

OCZ Agility EX SSD offers 60GB capacity, up to 255MB/s read speed, up to 195MB/s write speed as well as seek time below 0.1ms. The drive consumes 2W in operating mode and 0.5W in standby mode. SLC NAND is times more reliable and faster than mainstream multi-level cell flash memory since it can handle more write cycles.

 “When customers take all the benefits of SLC into consideration the total cost of ownership of these drives truly shines through,” added Mr. Chang.

OCZ will initially release its new SSD with an MSRP of $399 and 3-year warranty.
