OCZ Technology Group, a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs), said on Monday that it would show off version of its new Vector SSD series for PCI Express (PCIe) interfaces at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013. OCZ will also present its portfolio of enterprise and consumer SSDs, as well as enterprise software used to cache, virtualize or accelerate key applications and associated data.


The PCI Express-based Vector SSD family has improved input/output operations per second (IOPS) burst performance and consistently delivers superior 'real-world' sustained performance regardless of whether the data streams are in compressed or uncompressed formats. Residing directly on the PCIe bus, this new addition to the Vector series provides lower latency to data, faster file transfers and boot-ups, expanded storage capacities, and an even quicker, more responsive experience over the already fast Serial ATA-6Gb/s Vector SSDs. The combination of enhanced bandwidth and higher capacities make the Vector PCIe SSD Series ideal for power users, content creation and workstation applications.

The Vector PCIe SSD Series supports high-performance Windows-based laptops, desktops and workstations with PCI Express 2.0 x4 in full-height (FH) and half-height (HH) formats. Its advanced suite of flash management tools deliver advanced drive endurance and data reliability in support of 100GB host writes per day for 5 years ensuring that Vector PCIe SSDs can be reliably used in a wide range of high performance computing environments over an extended lifetime.

In addition to the Vector PCIe SSD demonstration, OCZ will showcase a wide range of client (Vector and Vertex 4) and enterprise (Deneva 2, Talos 2, Z-Drive R4) solid-state storage solutions at this year's CES.
