OCZ Showcases Barrier-Breaking Products at CeBit 2009 in Germany

With Hannover Germany buzzing with tech industry types from all over the globe, Cebit 2009 is well underway and OCZ is making the most of this year's show by unveiling a pleathora of exciting new products. With new offerings ranging from the familiar power supply, memory, and peripherals to several new undertakings, OCZ Technology strives to bring a vast new selection of enthusiast products to the global market.

Diversifying their flash memory options, OCZ is showcasing the new "Lockdown" ultra-durable USB drive to keep your data safe from accidental drops and spills. Lockdown will be available in up to 32GB capacities with a robust aluminum chassis impervious to most damaging situations.


OCZ will also release a new flagship 1000W PSU within the month, the new 80+ Gold Certified "Z Series" boasting over 90% efficiency. With its single +12V rail and robust architecture, the Z Series is sure to please the high-end enthusiast crowd along with energy-conscious PC users.


The latest DIY solution is the OCZ Neutrino "netbook" an ultra-portable 10-inch with the ability to configure your own memory and hard drive or solid state drive options. Proving that good things come in small packages, the Neutrino packs a huge punch for on-the-go traveling, educational, home use, or any user looking for a physically light computer but heavy on the useful applications and functionality.


A completely new undertaking is the latest OCZ "Z Drive", a one-terabyte MLC-based SSD with 256MB of local cache and hardware-based RAID controller. Definitely for the high-end crowd, the Z Drive won't come cheap but will offer incredible performance numbers for unsurpassable system functioning and response.


Hexus got to take a close-up look at the Z Drive. It is essentially a set of four 256GB SSDs RAID0 in a combined form factor that fits into a x16 PCI-E slot. For a size comparison, think GTX295. In this configuration, the Z Drive put out some pretty impressive numbers, with 1200MB/s burst, 700MB/s sequential read, and 500MB/s sequential write speeds.

Steam seems to be on a streak with the discounts; Lost planet can now be purchased for EUR 4,99 which is probably GBP 3,49.

Reviews are moderate, but might just download it for the price :)



O_o
I payed over £30 for that game.
But that was like when it came out so lol.

Discounts ftw!

For 5 Euros. Yes anything for than 15 Euros not because the game is kinda old and LP2 is coming out soon.
Story is pretty good actually.

Hmmm. Go on then. Shame about the large download. I'll buy it now (since it's a weekend deal) and download it tomorrow. Thanks for that. :)

:D, I just got the demo for benchmarks lol. I did purchase it for PS3, tried to join a game and none was found, game was dead. I played demo on PS3 and there was LOADS of players. Weird really.

Any other bad comments about Steam to the side, u can't mock the prices they're chucking titles out at.

I know, amazing game for £3.45, from what I watched it looks pretty good, just the controls etc..

Yes it's a terrible port, devs didn't even take the effort to at least change the control tips in the campaign. For €5 however, it's a nice thing to sometimes go berserk on :p

Edit: and yes, can't argue with the steam prices at the moment. According to an article on tweakers.net (major dutch tech site) the sales of the weekend deal games have raised with 300%, and some games which were not named have even been said to raise to 18.000%. Yes you read that right, a factor 180. Left4dead made more money when it was discounted to €30,- than on the launch. Valve's conclusion: games are too expensive.

That was probably half life anniversary for €1 though :p

english article which was also t.net's source.
