OCZ’s Vertex line of solid state drives have been around for a while and we have reviewed many different Vertex drives over the past few years. If you remember back in 2011 OCZ acquired Indilinx and with the acquisition they were able to create an SSD controller completely in-house. The controller was the Barefoot 3 and it was featured on OCZ’s Vector solid state drive that we reviewed earlier this year. Well OCZ is back with a new drive in their Vertex 450. It will feature the same Barefoot 3 controller, and new 20nm MLC NAND instead of the 25nm that was being used on the Vector. Today we are taking a look at the 128GB version of the Vertex 450 that features sequential read and write speeds of 525 MB/s and 290 MB/s respectively. Not only that OCZ has sent us two drives so we can show you just how fast these drives are when put in a RAID array together. Read on as we take a look...
