OCZ's Vertex 4 launches within the hour

Hard launch ready


You may, or may not, have noticed the cute little countdown banner on top of our site that is counting down to the official launch of OCZ's latest Vertex 4 SSD, and within an hour we'll have the set of full official specs and details, but for now we'll stick to the information that we managed to overhear.

The Vertex 4 has already been seen at this years Cebit show and with second generation Indilix controller it was certainly a star of OCZ's Cebit showcase. With Indilinx Everest 2 controller and promises of up to 550MB/s transfer speeds and up to 90k IOPS, we were definitely interested in this one, but OCZ kept it quite hidden. Finally, the wait is over and OCZ's Vertex 4 will launch today.

We'll leave the final details when the new Vertex 4 is officially launched, but we can shed some info before the launch. Initially, the Vertex 4 will launch in 128, 256 and 512GB capacities and although we still don't have precise info, we've heard that max read and write transfer speeds as well as IOPS numbers will be quite impressive.

Another good piece of information is that we are looking at a hard launch with this one and that we'll be surprised with suggested retail pricing. This means that you'll actually be able to buy the drive right after the official launch (in next 15 minutes or so) as it has already shipped to retail/e-tail shops.

Be sure to tune back in for some official details regarding the new OCZ Vertex 4 SSD series and we certainly hope that we'll see a review or two soon.
