California-based hardware manufacturer OCZ has announced a new lineup of entry level SATA 3 SSDs known as Petrol.

Alongside its previously revealed Octane Series, the 2.5-inch Petrol Series will be one of the first SSDs from OCZ to use controllers from Indilinx Everest. According to OCZ, the Petrol SSDs will have a bandwidth of up to 400MB/s, 35000 IOPS and access times of 0.06ms.

Until today, SSD adoption has been limited to high performance applications due to the high cost of SSDs in relation to slower rotating discs, and we are proud to once again close the gap in pricing without sacrificing durability,” said OCZ CEO Ryan Petersen in the press release.

The Petrol Series will be available in the coming weeks in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB drives with a 3-year warranty. According to Tom’s Hardware, the models are currently being listed for $113, $187, $396 and $803, respectively, but final prices are subject to change.
