Based pretty much on the same design as the Vertex 460, and offering same features and performance, the new Vertex 460A uses the same Barefoot M15 controller 3 M10 controller but replaces the 19nm MLC NAND with new Toshiba A19 MLC NAND.
According to OCZ, despite the change in used NAND, the new Vertex 460A will offer the same performance as the Vertex 460 SSD with maximum read and write performance of up to 545MB/s and 525MB/s and random I/O read and write performance of up to 95k and 90k IOPS. The new Vertex 460A will also be available in 120, 240 and 480GB capacities and is rated to deliver 20GB of host writes per day. It will also feature OCZ's new 3-year ShieldPlus warranty.
According to OCZ, the new Vertex 460A will be available on the market soon with pretty much the same price as the Vertex 460 SSD series.
