For PC junkies, there's hardly anything better than a new solid state
drive announcement. Every time we see a new SSD
, we think about just how
eager we are to transition into a world where HDDs are the past and
SSDs are the present. OCZ
Technology seems to be dreaming those same
dreams, and today they've unveiled a new addition to the Vertex 3 SATA
III Series of solid state drives. The Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition drive is
the unit in question, which combines the speed of SATA III with boosted
random write performance.
These units are said to be ideal solutions for applications that demand
high aggregate workloads and increased IO throughput, and it relies on
SandForce's SF-2200 SSD controller. Vertex 3 Max IOPS will be available
in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, and
480GB, and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the
drive's lifespan, and of course you'll get a 3-year warranty to boot. No
pricing to discuss just yet, though!
