Default OCZ Z Drive: Pretty interesting

Saw a link for this at the Inq. Its an OCZ drive that the reviewer says:
Quote:
Average reads over 700MB/s, average write speeds over 600MB/s (consistent!)
IT-review.net - OCZ Z-drive review

Wonder what this will cost? Also looks like it sits in a PCI-E slot.

Yeah there are a few companies sporting PCIe SSD's... some even higher than 700mb a second! Although they may not need to keep em in the PCIe once SATA III is released.

I am really not that impressed. From what people have said it is just a regular Highpoint RAID card with 4 Vertex' surrounding it, fit in to a nice HUGE case.
