The 1TB Colossus will set you back over $3000, so expect a similar price if the new drive uses MLC flash at a similar density. On the other hand, if OCZ chooses to take advantage of their recent deal with SandForce and produce an SLC version then the price tag will shoot up, as will the overall performance of the drive.
“The dreary wait for slow desktop and notebook booting could be halted in its tracks for those with USB 3 interfaces and and cash, as OCZ is developing a fast and large capacity USB 3 SSD.
What’s happening is that OCZ is getting together with Symwave, a supplier of USB 3.0 silicon, to add a USB 3 interface to a desktop solid state drive (SSD) it’s developing. There’s a picture of the prototype below courtesy of Daily Tech.”
