OCZ Technology Introduces the Throttle eSATA Drive, Offering Enthusiasts Blazing Performance over Traditional USB Flash Storage


As the name implies, this drive's best feature is the inclusion of eSATA connectivity to really get those transfer speeds crankin'. OCZ claims the Throttle eSATA's read and write speeds to be up to 90MB/sec and 30MB/sec respectively; far superior to the aging USB 2.0 standard. If, however, for some reason you're wanting to access the drive's data on a system that lacks eSATA, OCZ made sure to implement a mini-USB port to cover all situations.


The Throttle eSATA can be purchased in capacities of 8, 16 and 32GB. You can find more information about it within the press release here and the product page here folks.


Sunnyvale, CA-December 4, 2008-OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today introduced the Throttle eSATA drive, which offers performance and versatility for enthusiasts that demand the best hardware. The integration of eSATA connectivity now extends beyond desktop systems to laptops, offering increased data transfer rates with extreme portability while eliminating extra cords and power cables.
