100GB to 400GB variants
OCZ Technology has introduced two new Vertex-series SSDs claimed to take advantage of 6Gb/s transfer speeds supported by SATA III interfaces. Performance is said to be doubled from the previous generation, with a new SandForce processor that reaches 550MB/s read transfer rates, 500MB/s write rates, and up to 60,000 IOPS.
The 2.5-inch Vertex 3 SSDs will ship in capacities ranging from 120GB to 240GB, while the Pro edition will come in 100GB to 400GB capacities. The company has yet to announce pricing information for the new lineup, which will be showcased next week at CeBIT in Germany.
