OCZ working on 3.5-inch SSDs

Written by Slobodan Simic

Vertex 2 and Agility 2 series

In addition to the regular 2.5-inch and the new 1.8-inch SSDs, OCZ is apparently also working on 3.5-inch versions of Vertex 2 and Agility 2 solid state drives.

Although these aren't announced yet, thanks to the tip from our sources we can share some info about these upcoming SSDs. Both Vertex 2 and Agility 2 3.5-inch SSDs will have the same specs as their 2.5-inch brethren, so you can expect speeds of up to 285MB/s for maximum write and 275MB/s for maximum read as well as 250MB/s for sustained write. The 4k random write figures ends up at 50,000 IOPS for both drives or at least for 120 and 240GB versions.

Both Vertex 2 and the Agility 2 3.5-inch SSDs will end up in three versions with 120, 240 and 480GB capacity and will feature SATA II 3.0Gbps interface.

The new 3.5-inch Vertex 2 and Agility 2 should appear in retail/e-tail pretty soon and we'll update the article with prices accordingly.
