The OCZ Z-Drive R2 p88 is one of three bootable and field-serviceable PCI-E SSD drives released in April 2010 as an upgrade from the first generation Z-Drive models from 2009. Aimed strictly at the professional market, the p88 and its peers utilize interchangeable NAND modules designed to make them both field-serviceable and field-upgradeable. As the top model in the series, the R2 p88 hosts an eight-way RAID 0 configuration with 512MB of cache, allowing it to reach ultra-fast speeds up to 1-1.4GB/s write and 1.3-1.4GB/s read. Plus the unit comes with a background Garbage Collection function that maintains performance levels over time as the drives read and write and wipe their cells. Together with the together with the PCI-E architecture, the p88 delivers low-cost field upgradeability, unprecedented flexibility, superior sequential performance speeds, lowered power consumption, enhanced shock resistance, and superior durability.
