In order to achieve this speeds, the new and striking creation from OCZ uses the NVM Express 1.1b technology, which allows to use the PCI Express bus (PCIe 3.0 x4 in this case). This OCZ Z-Drive 6000 NVMe uses a SFF-8639 type connector with hot plug connection.
This way it is possible to achieve reading speeds higher than 3000 MB/s and writing speeds higher than 2000 MB/s. Also, if we talk about performance desktop access, we have an incredible reading 700,000 IOPS and writing 175,000 IOPS. All this with a PCM Sierra Princeton controller with OCZ’s own firmware.
Its capacity goes from 800 GB up to 3,2 TB, although OCZ is expecting to release soon a model with 6,4 TB capacity, that, without surpassing the 2,5 inches, but with a 15 mm thickness, this as thick as we are used to see in conventional SSDs.
However, by now you might have guessed that this product is aimed at the business market, where the size is not a problem, as is its price, which is still unknown and will likely be as astronomical as its speed.
