OCZ is working on yet another member of the Vector SSD lineup, the Vector 180. Techpowerup managed to spot it at the Computex 2014 floor and score some pictures of the PCB as well as some details regarding the expected performance of the new SSD.
The upcoming Vector 180 will be a high-end 2.5-inch consumer SSD based on OCZ-Indilinx Barefoot 3 M00 series controller which will be paired up with Toshiba's 19nm MLC NAND. According to OCZ, the new Vector 180 will pack quite a few features which will also make it suitable for entry-enterprise markets as well.
The first PCB pictures of the OCZ Vector 180 show LPDDR3 cache as well as a power-outage mitigating logic part which will finish all current read and write operations if it senses a power outage or unstable power, which should prevent data loss.
According to first informations, the upcoming Vector 180 SSD will be available in capacities of up to 960GB and offer sequential transfer speeds of up to 550MB/s with 4K random performance will be at up to 100,000 IOPS.
Hopefully, the OCZ Vector 180 official release is not far away and we will hear more about it soon.
