 |  |  |  |  |  |  February 25, 2011


OCZ may be vacating many of the markets it used to be in, but it is taking their extra resources and putting those towards making cool gear like the new line of Vertex 3 SSDs. These solid state drives are so fast, the word fast seems too slow.

The Vertex 3 line includes the normal drive and the Vertex 3 Pro. Both of the drives are able to connect to SATA 6Gbps ports, and the both use the Sandforce SF-2200 processor to control the action. That processor gives the SSDs performance of 550MB/s write and 500MB/s read.

The Pro SSD has additional tweaks for enterprise use for better reliability and it uses MLC NAND memory inside. The standard Vertex 3 will ship in 120GB and 240GB capacities with the Pro version in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB versions. Pricing has not been announced at this time.
