OCZ and Symwave team for high performance USB 3.0 storage product

One of the new technologies that I am most looking forward to is USB 3.0. I have an external hard drive that I back my computer up to and it takes forever over a USB 2.0 connection. With USB 3.0, the deed can be completed much faster. OCZ and Symwave have announced that they have teamed up to create a new USB 3.0 external storage solution.

The two firms are mum on the details at this point other than to tease us saying that the storage solution will be the smallest, highest performance, and lowest power USB 3.0 external storage solution around. With the myriad of SSDs that OCZ offers its easy enough to guess that we are looking at a SSD inside a USB 3.0 chassis.

The pair will unveil the storage solution at CES 2010 in January. I would be interested to see OCZ cram that huge 1TB SSD it unveiled recently into a USB 3.0 external storage solution.
