OCZ has announced that it has teamed up with Symwave to develop what the pair is calling the smallest and highest performance USB 3.0 external storage device that also uses the smallest amount of power. The two are mum on details of the device, but say they will be unveiled the storage solution at CES 2010 set to kick off in January.

Considering that OCZ doesn’t make hard drives, but does have a full line of SSD products it is safe to assume that the external storage solution will be SSD-based. My money says that the two are cramming one of those new Colossus 1TB SSDs into a USB 3.0 enclosure.

“Thanks to Symwave’s industry leading USB 3.0 storage controller, our external SSD device delivers 10x the transfer rate of USB 2.0 at 5Gb/s, as well as several ‘green’ improvements including superior power management and lower CPU utilization,” said Eugene Chang, Vice President of Product Management at the OCZ Technology Group. “We are determined to be at the forefront of the market by offering products with unparalleled performance, reliability, and design to unleash the potential of flash-based storage.”
