OCZ delivers some astonishing performance numbers with its latest generation 2.5: SSD

It seem as though each day is better than the next when it comes to new product announcements here at CES -- especially when it comes to the hot field of SSDs. Everyone is in a game of one-upmanship, with Micron announcing its 415/260 (read/write) RealSSD C400 on Tuesday and Corsair announcing its 480/320 Performance 3 Series yesterday.

Now it's OCZ's turn to blow everyone out the water with its new Vertex 3 Pro. The Vertex 3 Pro is based on SandForce's SF-2582 SATA III/6Gbps compliant controller, and delivers read speeds of a whopping 550MB/sec and write speeds of an almost equally blazing 525MB/sec.

When paired with a SATA III controller, the real world numbers are equally impressive. Anand Shimpi of AnandTech was able to record a maximum of 492MB/sec sequential read and 518MB/sec sequential write using a prototype drive.

"Performance may even increase by the time OCZ actually ships the drive," said Shimpi. "Furthermore, this is the performance of a single drive with a single controller - there’s no funny on-board RAID going on, we’re just talking about the performance of a single drive."

The Vertex 3 Pro SSDs will be available in capacities ranging from 64GB to 512GB. We'll get your some up close and personal pictures of the SSDs (and hopefully a word on pricing) later today.





"So, I think the same thing of the music industry. They can't say that they're losing money, you know what I'm saying. They just probably don't have the same surplus that they had." -- Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA
