It looks like OCZ is readying their Vertex 5 solid state drive. This would of course be the successor to the very popular Vertex 4 drive. With its release it should become the new flagship product for the company. The Vertex 5 line is said to be comprised of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB models and will launch towards the end of May 2013.
The drive will be based off the same Barefoot controller we saw in OCZ’s Vector solid state drive, although there will be a few performance tweaks. The drive is also said to be using newer 20nm MLC NAND chips. It will be interesting to see the price points on these drives as Samsung has very agressive pricing on their 840 and 840 Pro Series solid state drives.
