Default OCZ Z-Drive 1000GB SSD Performance Preview at Cebit

OCZ will be launching an SSD based product later this year which promises never before seen performance, 600mb/s read and up to 500mb/s write will not be out of the ordinary. We got a chance to do a few performance tests at Cebit this year where they were demoing a 1000Gb version.

Insane! That thing is larger than even the largest GPUs.

It won't fit in mid-size cases, unless you hack the casing, but at that price point you should be able to afford a nice large case too

Is it even bootable? Was the OS running off of the drive? The last PCIe SSD configurations I heard about were not capable of booting from.

It's like booting / running windows from a raid array from a plug in card

Yes, but as I recall the first Fusion-io card was the same thing, but could not be used as a bootable drive due to some reason or another. They said future models would have the problem solved.

You do need a driver for it to be bootable, but other than that it should work. The one on display was not a boot drive though.

it was not used as the boot drive so you could do write tests on it, reformat it with different stripe size etc... it's perfectly bootable, it's after all a Highpoint Rocketraid PCIe card where you hook a few drives up to.

with 8xSATA drives you can get similar speeds of 750mb/s in HDTach

during Windows setup hit F6 when asked and provide a driver disk and you're good to go

yup jmke is absolutely right on this, all you need to do is setup BIOS to boot from PCIE RAID card
