Earlier this month OCZ introduced a new flash drive that uses the eSATA interface rather than USB like virtually all flash drives on the market. The use of the eSATA interface means considerably higher performance than a USB flash drive can deliver.

OCZ claims that the Throttle can write at up to 30MB/sec and read at up to 90MB/sec. Storage capacities available include 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB. For times when the computer available lacks an eSATA port the drive also features a mini USB port.

“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.”
