OCZ Enyo External USB 3.0 SSD Announced
OCZ ha launched the Enyo Portable SSD with USB 3.0 interface. The sleek design features an internal SSD that comes in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities and sees top-side speeds of 260MB/s read and 200MB/s write.
The OCZ Enyo comes with an anodized aluminum housing and will start shipping soon. No pricing was announced, though we expect the Enyo to fall in line more or less with OCZ's high-end internal SSD pricing.
The market need for such speed in an external enclosure isn't clear, but that's never stopped OCZ before, who enjoys making limited edition SSDs and other niche products to differentiate themselves from the vast array of competition. That said, if you're one of the few who need scorching fast transfer speeds to an external drive and are willing to pay the presumably high price, the Enyo line could be a viable option.
