OCZ rolls out its new Vertex 3

Written by Slobodan Simic

Max IOPS edition for 75,000 IOPS
OCZ has updated its SSD offer with yet another member of the Vertex 3 lineup, the Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition. Unlike the regular Vertex 3, this one is tweaked to offer 4KB random write perfromance of up to 75,000 IOPS.

The new Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition is still based on the Sandforce SF-2200 controller and uses SATA 6Gbps interface but offers increased 4KB random write performance thanks to few tweaks, so it is capable of reaching 75,000 IOPS, which is a nice boost from the 60,000 on the regular Vertex 3.

The new one will be available in 120 and 240GB capacities and is currently listed in Europe for €256,83 for the 120GB one and €464,42 for the 240GB one. You can check them all out here.

I can't wait for the day when these become more affordable at higher capacities :-)

By then the SSDs will be reaching read & writes of 1Gb+ for ordinary 2.5" drives, but for TLC NAND to reach the current prices of HDDS then the NAND chips need to be shrunk to around 6nm-7nm which is quite a distance, but the NAND industry shrinks faster than the CPU or GPU industry so it may be in around 3 or 4 years

How did you figure that out? I have an 80GB SSD, found a very good deal on it fortunately.
Nothing wrong with a decent HDD at all though, especially in a RAID setup.

If you've got the money to burn, go for it. Early adopters are what push the industry forward. You want pure speed, personally I prefer storage and security. Solid state drives haven't come CLOSE to affordable for mass media storage. With an average of 3-4 shows a week, a $110 60GB SSD would be filled in ~10 days. On the flip side, $120 gives me a mirrored pair of 1TB drives.
