OCZ has launched new SSDs for people looking for raw performance. The new SSDs are the Vertex 3 and the Vertex 3 Pro. Both of the SSDs use the Sandforce SF-2200 processor and have 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write speeds. The drives also have up to 60,000 IOPS performance.
The Vertex 3 uses SATA 6Gb/s interface and will ship in 120GB and 240GB with the Pro version using the same interface and coming in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB versions. Pricing is unknown, but these high-end SSDs won't be budget offerings.
"The new Vertex 3 solid state drive series builds on the success of our previous two generations of products and delivers exceptional performance by utilizing fast synchronous mode 2Xnm MLC NAND flash technology," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. "These storage solutions feature both the highest sequential speeds available with a SATA 6GBps SSD and the highest IOPS of any current 2.5 inch SSD on the market today, allowing us to once again set the benchmark for industry leading SSD performance and reliability."
