On July 1, OCZ shook the storage market with its new OCZ Core Series SSDs which were priced at $169, $259, and $479 respectively for 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models — street prices were actually a bit lower after a mail-in rebate that OCZ offered on the drives.
The other key selling point — besides the price — for the drives were their rather remarkable performance ratings. The drives featured read speeds of 120 to 143 MB/sec and write speeds of 80 to 93 MB/sec.
OCZ is not resting on its success with the OCZ Core Series and today announced its brand new Core Series V2 SSDs. With the Core Series V2 drives, OCZ not only ratcheted up the storage capacity, but also performance.
