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.
