Toshiba has revealed a new portable SSD that is marketed under the OCZ brand. The OCZ XS700 SSD has a capacity of 240GB and comes in a shockproof aluminum housing. It connects to the computer using a USB-C connector.

The OCZ XS700 measures 9.5 x 7.5 centimeter, has a height of 11 mm and weighs 90 grams. It contains Toshiba’s 3D BiCS Flash NAND memory that is controlled by a Phison S11 controller.

The combination of the NAND and the controller should be able to achieve a maximum sequential read speed of 530MB/s and a maximum sequential write speed of 480MB/s. Toshiba hasn’t disclosed any information on the random write and read performance.

The drive should survive a drop from 2 meters on carpet and is backed by a 3-year standard warranty.

It’s expected the OCZ XS700 will cost around $200 but it’s unclear when the drive will hit the shelves.
