Earlier this year I reviewed the OCZ Roadster and OCZ VBoost flash drives. These drives had a nice design but lacked a bit in the performance area.
Today OCZ released two new USB drives: the ATV and ATV Turbo. Both have a kinda flashy and rugged design and especially the ATV Turbo is very fast.
The all-new ATV and ATV Turbo are ruggedized storage solutions for professionals, students, and gamers on the go, and are built to handle whatever rough terrain you encounter. Developed to compete with the fastest flash drives in the world, the ATV Turbo features unbelievable speed for today’s busy lifestyles.
“The OCZ ATV series is designed to operate under harsh environments with its shock and water-proof design,” states Jacky Huang, VP of Product Management at OCZ. “Besides its all-terrain nature, we also built this device with all the latest storage technology to make it truly cater to the most performance-demanding power users with its fast read/write speeds.”
The OCZ ATV Turbo flash drive features read speeds of up to 35MB/s and write speeds of up to 30MB/s. The ATV drive is a bit slower, that drive can only read at 30MB/s and write at 14MB/s.
