OCZ speeds up with Agility 2, Vertex 2 SSDs

updated 06:20 pm EDT, Thu April 8, 2010

OCZ nears 300MB per second with Vertex 2

OCZ today added two extremely high-performance SSDs to its mix that set relative records. Both the Agility 2 and Vertex 2 use a new controller that is not only faster in absolute terms but consistently faster in both directions. Either can peak at 285MB per second in read speeds, but they can also write at up to 275MB per second.

The two fit into most any 2.5-inch SATA or SATA II bay on computers and support the TRIM command to keep Windows 7 performance from decaying over time. Capacities range from a boot-drive-oriented 50GB to as much as 400GB; pricing hasn't been given, but all save for the top-end 400GB model should ship within the next few weeks. The 400GB levels depend on necessary firmware becoming available.
