OCZ unveils Vertex 3 SSD range25 February 2011 15:33:33
Memory device manufacturer OCZ has unveiled its latest family of solid state drive (SSD) products.
The Vertex 3 SATA III SSD range is designed for both client and enterprise applications and uses the 6Gbps speed of the SATA III interface.
It is OCZ's first SSD range to feature the new SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor, allowing 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write transfer rates and up to 60,000 IOPS.
This, it says, significantly improves gaming, multimedia and the overall computing experience.
"The new Vertex 3 solid state drive series builds on the success of our previous two generations of products and delivers exceptional performance by utilising fast synchronous mode 2Xnm MLC NAND flash technology," said Ryan Petersen, chief executive of OCZ Technology Group.
"These storage solutions feature both the highest sequential speeds available with a SATA 6GBps SSD and the highest IOPS of any current 2.5 inch SSD on the market today, allowing us to once again set the benchmark for industry leading SSD performance and reliability."
Earlier this month, OCZ announced it is the first SSD manufacturer to successfully complete the transition to 2Xnm NAND flash-based storage solutions.
