OCZ unveiled Throttle, a new flash drive that uses the eSATA interface which allows significantly faster transfer speeds. While a regular USB drive tops out around 35MB/s, the new OCZ Throttle promises read speeds of up to 90MB/s and write speeds of up to 30MB/s. However, not all systems support eSATA so the drive also has a mini USB 2.0 ports for improved flexibility.
The OCZ Throttle is now available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities.
“We are excited to introduce the Throttle eSATA drive, which delivers many of the key benefits of external SATA including faster transfer rates and a cost effective expansion storage for high performance computing,” said Eugene Chang, Director of Product Management for the OCZ Technology Group. “The Throttle is available in high densities and offers exceptional peak interface speeds for high performance notebooks, desktops, consumer electronics and entry level servers. In the case where an eSATA port is not available, the Throttle has the ability to connect via USB as well for ultimate flexibility.”
