Brings TLC prices with 15nm MLC NAND

Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced its newest OCZ VX500 SATA SSD series, which will be based on a Toshiba controller, 15nm MLC NAND and promises great price/GB with MLC-performance.

Available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities, the  Toshiba OCZ VX500 SSD series is based on the  TC358790 controller, its 15nm MLC NAND and comes in a standard 2.5-inch form-factor with SATA 6Gbps interface.

What makes the  OCZ VX500 SSD interesting is the promise that it will deliver the performance of a standard MLC-based SSD at a similar price range to TLC NAND based SSDs.

According to Toshiba, the  OCZ VX500 SSD lineup hits sequential read performance of up to 550MB/S while sequential write performance depends on the model, reaching 485MB/s for the 128GB version, 510MB/s for the 256GB version and 515MB/s for the 512GB and 1TB versions. The random 4K performance peaks at 90,000 IOPS for read and 65,000 IOPS for write.

The Toshiba OCZ VX500 SSD series lineup is backed by a 5-year warranty, with an endurance rating of 74 to 592 TBW, depending on the capacity, and comes bundled with Acronis TrueImage cloning software.

According to some reports, the new Toshiba should appear in retail pretty soon priced at around US $65/€65 for the 128GB, US $95/€95 for the 256GB, US $150/€150 for the 512GB and US $340/€340 for the 1TB version.
