OCZ's Vector PCIe SSD will work on Windows-based desktops, laptops and workstations that sport 4 lanes of PCIe 2.0 in full-height and half-height formats. OCZ's Vector PCIe SSD will be capable of supporting up to 100GB host writes per day for up to five years, which should give plenty of peace of mind to users looking for a super-fast storage upgrade.

The drive will continue to be powered by the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller and will feature improved IOPS burst performance, but no numebrs have been unveiled by OCZ just yet.

OCZ are also set to show off a bunch of other storage solutions at CES, so continue to check back for more news from OCZ!
