OCZ Storage Solutions has announced its new Vertex 460 SATA III SSD Series.
Evolving from the 20nm-based Vertex 450, the new Vertex 460 uses the company’s proprietary Barefoot 3 (BF3) M10 controller with Toshiba's 19nm MLC NAND flash memory. Without the use of synthetic software-based optimization, the new series delivers sustained and mixed-workload performance across the board regardless of whether the data is in compressed or uncompressed formats, as well as a more responsive computing experience.
The SSDs offer up to 545MBps sequential reads, 525MBps sequential writes, 95,000 4K random read IOPS, and up to 90,000 4K random write IOPS, while featuring sustained 4K random write performance up to 23,000 IOPS. They are rated to deliver 20GB of host writes per day for a 3-year warranty, and feature a suite of flash management tools that analyze and dynamically adapt to increasing NAND vulnerabilities as flash cells wear, heightening data integrity, and drive life over the long term.
Available in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities with ultra-slim 7mm alloy housing, the Vertex 460 SSD Series is bundled with US$55 worth of accessories including a 3.5-inch desktop adapter and Acronis True Image cloning software to enable easy data transfer from legacy hard disk drives to high performance SSD storage.
