OCZ silently introduces new Agility Series SSDs

Affordable performer

OCZ
has silently posted the new Agility Series on its web site. This new series will apparently be a performance part for the mainstream segment of the market and will be available in 30, 60 and 120GB capacities.

The new drive has 64MB of cache and have read and write speeds of up to 185MB/s and 100MB/s with the 60MB/s of sustained write for the 30GB version, while the 60 and 120GB version will be a bit faster with read and write speeds of up to 230 and 135MB/s and 80MB/s of sustained write. According to our info the new Agility series will keep the Indilix controller previously seen on Vertex series, but it will have a bit slower NAND chips.

The Indilix controller and cheaper NAND combo will make the new Agility about 10 percent cheaper than the Vertex Series. As you can see from the read and write speeds, its performance is also a bit slower when compared the the Vertex and it lacks the 250GB version.

The new Agility Series SSDs should hit retail sometimes during this month and we are quite sure that it will be quite popular due to its price/performance ratio.
