OCZ, a leader in the flash memory market as well as other components, improved the already proven-to-be-performant Vertex solid state drives. A minor change, yet very significant, has allowed the drives to reach insane transfer speeds. The host clock-speed and cache were overclocked from 166MHz to 180MHz.
This drive will come in sizes of 30, 60, 120 and 250GB. Compared to the 250MB/s and 160MB/s of its predecessor, the largest version will attain an amazing 270MB/s read speed and up to 210MB/s write. It features a proprietary firmware and still provides the snappy computing, longer battery life, and shorter boot-ups of the current Vertex series, along with the increased performance. These drives are backed with a 3 Year Warranty, plus the OCZ’s exemplary service and support.
There is no word on pricing and availability yet, but let's hope they are out on the market for the beginning of classes!
