OCZ has just added the new m84 to its Z-Drive family of PCI-Express based SSDs. This comes in a little cheaper than previous Z-Drive models with a choice of 256, 512GB, and 1TB capacities.

It uses a PCIe 8x interface and features MLC based NAND flash memory as well as an on-board RAID controller.

OCZ reports read and write speeds of up to 870MB/sec and 780MB/sec respectively, except for the 256GB model which has read/write speeds of 750/650 MB/s.

 

"The OCZ m84 Z-Drive is the newest addition to our line of PCI-E solid state drives and is designed to offer consumers a high performance yet aggressively priced solid state solution," said Eugene Chang, Vice President of Product Management at the OCZ Technology Group. "While the previously released p84 and e84 Z-Drives were intended specifically for enterprise applications, the m84 delivers much of the same performance but at a price point that is competitive with standard SSD drives."

 

Actual pricing hasn't yet been disclosed, but we know the drives will come with a three year warranty and are shipping very soon.
