OCZ shows off Vertex 3 SSDs OCZ has debuted their Vertex 3 SSD line this week, with read speeds of 550 MB/s and write speeds of up to 520 MB/s.
The drives will be available as 120, 240 and 480GB varieties.

Enterprise-class versions of the drive will begin shipping in May.

First introduced at CES in January, the drives will feature a SATA 6 Gbps interface and a Sandforce SF-2200 controller. Each 2.5-inch drive will also feature native TRIM support.

Says OCZ (via THG):

The Vertex 3 series with the SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor has been eagerly anticipated in the marketplace. Our partnership with SandForce has again facilitated the introduction of a solution that sets the benchmark for industry leading performance and reliability.


As with most SSD, the new Vertex 3 will not be cheap. The 120GB model retails for $300, the 240GB for $550 and the 480GB for a whopping $1900.

So 4x 240 gig versions in raid cost similar price as the 480 gig one?

really good point considering just two in raid matching 480gb and twice as fast would be $1100.

well they dropped the ball with the last run of the new 25nm v2's

arn't revos still faster? this might make them cheaper by comparison.

what really sh!ts me is that aussies will be paying twice as much for the product even though our dollar is worth more than the us$ now, what a f**king joke.

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
