We are not sure if OCZ will have actually working demo samples on display at their booth, but what we get a look here is final prototype designs of OCZ's upcoming USB 3.0 SSD.

Using MLC flash memory, the anodized aluminum cased drives will come in sizes of 64, 128 and 256GB and uses a Micro B USB connector. There will be two LEDs on the drive to indication power and access activity.

No details on price, availability or performance yet, but we suspect these drives will be popular especially with the large performance gain to be had over the aging USB 2.0 standard.
