SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/13 -- OCZ Technology Group,
Inc. (NASDAQ: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance
solid-state drives (SSDs) and power management solutions for
computing devices and systems, will showcase the Company's

Continuing to demonstrate its commitment to the enthusiast market,
OCZ is unveiling the new Fatal1ty Gaming Series power supplies (PSUs)
in updated 550W and 750W models designed to provide exceptional power
solutions for gamers and enthusiasts, offering performance and
reliability coupled with exciting new features. These latest PSUs
feature premium components and heavy-duty protection circuitries with
a fully modular cable management system to provide an organized case
environment that maximizes airflow by eliminating unnecessary wiring,
and utilizes specialized DC-to-DC converters for compatibility with
Intel'sÂ® Haswellâ„¢ platform. Both models also feature a single +12V
rail for exceptional power distribution, 80-Plus Bronze rating for
high energy efficiency up to 85% at typical loads, along with 135mm
load-controlled fans with the Fatal1ty Series of trademark glowing
red LEDs for stylish yet silent operation in high-end gaming rigs.
To kickoff the launch of the exciting new power supplies, Johnathan
"Fatal1ty" Wendel will compete against fellow gamer and former
sparring partner Kyle "relic" Mims in a special shootout to be held
June 6, 7-11pm at the SPARK venue in Taiwan's landmark Taipei 101 on
June 6th. With a record of 12 World Titles in five different games,
Wendel is one of the most successful and recognized professional
gamers in history. In recent years Wendel has declined to compete
professionally and instead stay focused on promoting video gaming
globally in his role as a Gaming Ambassador, while concentrating on
his Fatal1ty Gaming Gear enterprise which includes the latest OCZ
power supplies. In this special event, press, partners, and invited
attendees can get a firsthand look at the latest OCZ Fatal1ty Gaming
Series power supplies, along with viewing the live head-to-head
shootout between these two gamers.
For client storage, OCZ will demo its upcoming Vector PCIe SSD
featuring exceptional IOPS, high bandwidth, and high capacities ideal
for power users, content creation, and workstation applications.
Residing directly on the PCI Express bus, the new Vector PCIe Series
provides lower latency to data, faster file transfers and boot-ups,
expanded storage capacities, and an even quicker, more responsive
experience over the already blazing fast SATA III-based Vector SSDs.
In addition, OCZ will showcase its current consumer SSD lineup with
the recently launched Vertex 450 SATA III SSD Series which has
already earned numerous accolades and praise from the global media
for its high performance coupled with the latest 20nm flash geometry
for mainstream computing applications.
OCZ will also be displaying its complete portfolio of enterprise
storage solutions including the SATA based Deneva 2, Talos 2 SAS
drive, and Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD Series, featuring the newest ZD-XL SQL
Accelerator that represents the convergence of enterprise hardware
and software as one tightly integrated, optimized solution, ensuring
that appropriate and readily available data is on SSD flash when a
SQL Server needs it.
Join OCZ Technology on the Computex main show floor at the Nangang
Exhibit Hall, Booth K0309a to see the latest SSD and PSU products
designed for enterprise and client applications demanding maximized
