With recent bad press taunting the much-trouble Jmicron’s JMF602 series controllers that's been reported with drive stuttering, pausing and lagging issues, OCZ has opted to release the new line of Vertex solid state storage, previously announced here, with the Korea-based Indilink Barefoot controller.
Most Waterblocks contain copper and the present of an aluminum compound in the system would promote galvanic corrosion that’s a no no for water-cooling 101. Apparently OCZ likes the challenge, they have released a new Flex FX memory series featuring the integrated liquid injection system designed with 100% aluminum block.
Memory and Storage maker OCZ has announced its new line of Gold series SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) storage cards. Designed for serious professionals and videographers, these cards will be available in 4, 8 and 16GB capacities with 150X class 6 speed. That standard translates OCZ Gold series SDHC card's with speed of maximum transfer rates up to 22.5MB/s and a minimum transfer speed of at least 6 MB/s in real world scenario.
As usual, OCZ rarely releases pricing information or specific launch date for its product release. The Gold series SHDC cards will carry manufacturer lifetime warranty and free technical support.
OCZ rolls out a trio of ExpressCard Storage solution in the capacities of 8GB, 16Gb and 32GB configuration. The Slate series flash drives are compatible with Expresscard 34 standard, fit snugly inside your laptop and also works with the ubiquitous USB thanks to a secondary connection via an integrated mini-USB port.
32GB flash based storage is ok but slightly small in comparing to nowadays’ USB thumb drives. Additionally, the specification of maximum read and write sequential speed at 18MB/s and 12.5MB/s respectively are not that impressive either. If you hate the idea of an external drive, USB thumb drive or burning data into optical disks; the Slate series ExpressCard drive is always an option. Price and availability have not yet been announced.
