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.

Intel's 3rd gen is still going to be 3GB sata, and they're claiming 250/170GB sequential. Intel didn't give estimates of random IO speed in GS/sec, but since they're only calling for 40-50k IOPS/sec vs 60 or 75k on Sandforce 2 (OCZ is claiming higher numbers than sandforce), or 50k on Crucials C400 I don't think Intel will be winning on that front either. They're not going to be as far behind as the Indilinx Martini, but they won't be claiming the speed crown either.

To be fair, Intel's SSDs always perform better than their specs indicate. Even today I do believe the X25M-G2 gives windows the fastest boot time and application load times. No one has ever really given a good explanation as to why.
