OCZ unveils high speed Vertex Turbo SSDs

OCZ Vertex Turbo SSDs

OCZ today aimed for the performance crown and launched its Vertex Turbo solid-state drives. The 2.5-inch drives build on the existing formula of the Vertex line by increasing the clock speed for both the host controller managing data as well as the 64MB of cache; OCZ estimates peak read speeds of up to 270MB per second (up from 250MB) and peak writes of 210MB per second (from 160MB). Adding the extra speed provides an extra edge for notebooks and, through a bay adapter, performance desktops.

All of the Vertex Turbo models use an SATA II interface and carry the usual benefits of SSDs, such as lower power usage and a skip-proof design. Capacities match those of other OCZ drives with editions offering 30GB, 60GB, 120GB and 250GB of actual space. The company as it often does hasn't provided its own prices or said how soon buyers can expect the drives in stores.
