OCZ Technology is launching the new 2.5-inch Vertex 3 and the enterprise-class Vertex 3 Pro solid state drives. Both series uses SATA III interface to deliver double the performance of the previous generation Vertex 2. Both of them features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan.
The consumer-grade Vertex 3 is based on 2Xnm MLC NAND flash technology and utilizes the new SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor offering up to 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write transfer rates and up to 60,000 IOPS (4k random write). It comes in 120GB and 240GB capacities.
On the other hand, the Vertex 3 Pro enterprise SSD sports SandForce SF-2500 SSD SATA III processor and uses enterprise-grade MLC NAND flash. It comes in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB models.
