OCZ produced something of a surprise when its in-house Vector SSD stood well against more seasoned competition. It’s proud enough of that feat that it’s following up with demos of a PCI Express model for creative pros and others that may deal with exceptionally massive file transfers. The switch away from SATA isn’t just cosmetic, as PC Perspective saw: PCIe gives the Vector more bandwidth and raw actions per second, on top of boosting the peak storage and reducing lag. OCZ warns us that the demo unit is a prototype and doesn’t say when we might see a production model, though we’d venture that the usual PCIe storage price premium will be in effect.
