OCZ Announces Summit SSD Available

OCZ has announced a new addition to its SSD lineup with the Summit series. These drives come in 60GB, 120GB, and 250GB capacities. The Summit line boasts impressive read and write times of 220MB/s and 200MB/s respectively for the two larger capacity drives and 220MB/s read and 125MB/s write for the 60GB. Availability is limited, but I did find the 120GB listed at $380 from ecost. Not bad, considering how much performance you can get out of these SSDs these days. For the power conscious folks, the Summit uses a mere 2W at full power and 0.5W idle, which should lend to increased battery life over traditional spinning platters.
