The HP Z Turbo Drive features a PCIe connected SSD, which enables performance levels greater than 1 Gbps. This performance is available at a price that is at parity with today's comparable SATA SSDs. This will enable the highest price/performance ratio for client grade SSDs. The HP Z Turbo Drive will be supported on desktop platforms of HP Z workstations. It will support storage configurations as a boot device and as a data device. The performance gains are significant when connecting to the PCIe bus. The sequential read and write performance is roughly twice as fast as today's SATA SSD products. The HP Z Turbo Drive is supported on all current desktop workstation platforms. It is also supported by current offering of operating systems, and does not require a separate driver. It does require a BIOS update for any system shipped prior to the Z Turbo Drive launch. A maximum of 2 Z Turbo Drives can be shipped with platforms from the factory, and it can be configured with additional hard drives, both SATA and SAS.
