OCZ has been offering more and more new SSDs over the past few months as the firm makes a big push into the storage arena. OCZ has announced a new line of SSDs that plug into PCI Express slots on the mainboard of a users computer.

The new line of SSDs is called the Z-Drive SSDs. The Z-Drive line uses the PCI-E slot to remove the bottleneck created by the SATA interface on machines optimizing bandwidth. The line of drives are bootable and have eight PCI-E lanes and support 8-way RAID 0 configurations.

The Z-Drive R2 family is available in several configurations all using MLC NAND. The p88 offers 2TB of storage, the p84 offers 256GB - 1TB, and the m84 offers 256GB-1TB of storage. Pricing on the SSDs is not announced at this time.
