Only a little while ago we visited OCZ at CES and they showed us some of their upcoming solid state drives. These new drives feature the SandForce SF-2200 controller and boast blistering fast speeds. OCZ has been at the forefront of SSD technology and this year they are going to be releasing a ton of new drives. One of the first drives based on the new SandForce SF-2200 controller is the Vertex 3. This drive has a max read of 550MB/s and max write of 525MB/s! Those are some of the fastest advertised speeds we have seen in a consumer drive! OCZ was nice enough to send us an engineering sample version of the drive with BETA firmware on it, so let’s take a look!
It sure seems like everyone is coming out with SSD drives, interestingly enough we have not seen that many from the big hard drive manufacturers. More and more and we are seeing them from memory companies like OCZ. Today we are checking out one of their latest SSD drives the Vertex series. The Vertex series is based on the Barefoot SSD controller from Indilinx, which makes it different from the previous 2 SSD series from OCZ, the Apex and Summit. This will only be our second SSD review here at ThinkComputers, so let’s take a look…
