New SSD promises performance on a budget
Toshiba announced today that it had completed its acquisition of OCZ. OCZ filed for bankruptcy late last year and
Toshiba stepped up to make the purchase
. Toshiba now owns all the assets of OCZ Technology Group and has made it a wholly owned subsidiary.
Toshiba says that OCZ will continue to operate independently as OCZ Storage Solutions.
“The acquisition of OCZ further expands our solid-state storage capabilities and represents Toshiba’s commitment to this high-growth area,” said Mr. Seiichi Mori, Vice President of Toshiba's Semiconductor and Storage Company and Corporate Vice President of Toshiba. “Our goal is to offer a leading edge portfolio of solid state solutions to address the storage challenges faced by both client and enterprise customers, and the acquisition of OCZ is an ideal addition to our team in realizing this strategy.”
Following the acquisition announcement, Toshiba and OCZ wasted no time in trotting out a new storage product. OCZ announced the new Vertex 460 which uses 19nm Toshiba MLC NAND. The device focuses on performance on a budget according to OCZ.
The SSD promises up to 545 MB/s sequential reads and up to 525 MB/s sequential writes. The Vertex 460 also has 4K random read performance of 95000 IOPS. Random 4K write IOPS are up to 90000 with 4K sustained random write performance of up to 23000 IOPS. The new SSD also uses the proprietary Barefoot 3 M10 controller that supports AES-256 encryption and more.
The Vertex 460 is available in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities.

Mine was out for several days also. Deleting and adding didn't work. It is finally working again today. Shame there is no place on the site to report it.
