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.
