​Computex: Toshiba OCZ’s products

And why you won’t be seeing them in Australia

Only three drives on show from OCZ, but we're interested to see how they perform with their Toshiba controllers and NAND.

Only three drives on show from OCZ, but we're interested to see how they perform with their Toshiba controllers and NAND.

OCZ was bought by Toshiba back in 2014 but the dual brand products are still a way off arriving in Australia (and the rest of the APAC region).

Speaking from a small suite at the Grand Hyatt hotel at Computex, we were told by Peter Gamboa, (Product Manager, Client Solutions) that OCZ had, “Got most of EMEA back online now but are still looking to get APAC back online. It’s basically: we’re making sure we’re in compliance with all local laws. It’s taking a little longer than I’d like to be honest.”

There were just three main products on show:

1. TR150 Series entry-level SATA SSDs which utilize a Toshiba controller and Toshiba TLC NAND and are available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB capacities. Sequential read write figures are stated as up to 550MB/s and 520MB/s with a Random Read 4K score of up to 87,000 IOPS and a Random Write 4K score of up to 83,000 IOPS. A three-year warranty is included.

2. RD400 NVMe 1.1b M.2 drive with optional add-in card adapter. It utilizes a Toshiba controller with Toshiba MLC NAND and is available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1024GB capacities. Sequential read write figures are stated as up to 2,600MB/s and 1,600MB/s with a Random Read 4K score of up to 210,000 IOPS and a Random Write 4K score of up to 140,000 IOPS. A five-year warranty is included.

3. VT180 Enthusiast SATA SSD. Specs are similar to the TR150 series but with MLC NAND used ahead of TLC. This gives a boost to the Random scores with a Random Read 4K score of up to 95,000 IOPS and a Random Write 4K score of up to 90,000 IOPS. A five-year warranty is included along with a copy of Acronis True Image and a desktop adapter.

We were also told that OCZ views the U.2 connector as, “Dead on Arrival” and has no plans of creating drives in that form factor. We discuss that in more detail, here.

There’s no word on Australian pricing and availability but we hope to see OCZ back on its feet in Australia soon.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

Laura Johnston

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
