OCZ ups peak SSD speeds with Summit line

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

OCZ has rolled out its third 2.5in SSD family this year: the Summit series.

The range comprises 60GB, 120GB and 250GB post-format capacities. They all have 128MB of cache memory.

They have peak read and write speeds of 220MB/s and 200MB/s, respectively - though the 60GB model has a write speed of 125MB/s.

The three models have sustained write speeds of 120MB/s, 200MB/s and 200MB/s, OCZ said - each significantly faster than the company's most recent SSD line, Vertex, though the read numbers are smaller.

Each drive contains multi-layer cell Flash technology.

OCZ didn't provide pricing, but we've seen the 60GB model listed online for £209 and the 120GB model for £316. In the US, the 120GB model retails for around $381 (£241/€276). ®
