OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSD Released
OCZ has released and is now shipping a Max IOPS version of their popular Vertex 3 SSD. The drives increase random write performance of the original Vertex 3, ideal for applications where increased IO throughput is critical. The OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSDs leverage the SandForce SF-2200 series processors to deliver 4K random write performance with up to 75,000 IOPS compared to 60,000 IOPS for the standard Vertex 3.
Vertex 3 Max IOPS is available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB. The 120GB and 240GB models are available now with pricing of $300 and $555 on Amazon, which amounts to near parity with the same capacity standard Vertex 3.
All Vertex 3 SSDs offer TRIM support are backed with a 3 year warranty.
