    OCZ Enzo USB 3.0 SSD drive: Whoa, Nelly

    Do you need 256GB of hard core storage running at 150MBps? I know you do. The OCZ Enzo, which is apparently only in render stage, looks like the monster that ate Cleaveland and should cost considerably more than you’re currently willing to pay. But still, 260MBps for the USB 3.0 is wild. Read More

    OCZ now offering 4GB DDR3 DIMMs

    The world of memory timings, latency, and voltage is a strange one, but usually you can count on the fact that more RAM is better. OCZ, purveyor of fine system components (and super cheap ones), wants you to know that you can have as much DDR3 as you like — no more stacking up DIMMs up in your measly four slots for a paltry total of 8GB. No, they have doubled the capacity to 4GB/DIMM… Read More

  • OCZ adds eSATA in Throttle flash drives for quicker pr0n transfers

    OCZ adds eSATA in Throttle flash drives for quicker pr0n transfers

    USB 2.0 was great a few years ago when flash drives were measured in megabytes but now that they are reaching double-digit gigabytes, the interface can be a tad slow. OCZ understands that and hooked its latest flash drive up with eSATA for the main interface. Thanks to eSATA, the Throttle can read at 90MB per second and write at 30MB. That speed is fast enough to playback HD material, according… Read More

    OCZ's NIA brain-computer interface gets reviewed


    Hot Hardware has had their little hands on one of OCZ’s “Neural Impulse Actuator” doodads for a while and they’ve decided to drop a surprisingly positive review on us.

    OCZ putting Samsung 64GB SSDs on retail shelves


    Keep it on the down low, but it looks like OCZ has is using Samsung as a source for its 32GB and 64GB SATA II drives. I guess that’s not really that much of a shock. But it’s good news, because OCZ will actually be making these things available naked to consumers, as opposed to Samsung, which has most of its drives locked up in notebooks and such. So if you’re an early… Read More
