Solid State is one of the current buzz-words in the computing world. Everyone is rushing to enter the market and to have the fastest/largest drive.


This competition has led to a wide range of standards and performance. Many companies are striving to reach the 1TB goal and a few have hit this glorious goal that took the magnetic storage industry many years to reach.


OCZ wants to be one of those companies. They have been toying with the release of a PCI-e based SSD that features 1024GB of space. While we have not really seen the drive in the flesh there are some nice new renders of the card popping up on the internet along with what appears to be final specifications. The specs look pretty nice indeed including 256MB of onboard cache, a built in RAID controller, and read speeds of up to 878MB/s.


There is no word on a release date or price but you can bet it will cost a small fortune.
