OCZ debuts Vertex 460 SSDs

OCZ, a famous maker of SSDs and computer hardware, has announced its all-new Vertex 460 solid-state drives. The devices promise high performance and come in the well-known 2.5-inch form factor.

Each member of the new Vertex 460 line measures 99.7 x 69.75 x 7 mm and weighs 115 grams. This is the reason why these SSDs are aimed at ultrabooks, tablets and similar devices. The line includes three models as of now with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB with all of them based on the Indilinx Barefoot 3 M10 memory controller and 19 nm NAND flash memory by Toshiba. The drives support SATA 3.0 and reach up to 550 MB/sec of read speed and 95 000 IOPS when writing random 4K blocks. The new SSDs also support all modern technologies that are related to solid-state drives namely 256-bit AES, S.M.A.R.T, Garbage Collection and TRIM and come with a 3-year warranty.

The pricing of the Vertex 460 drives is unknown but the struggling OCZ surely wants to make as much money as possible. The company has agreed to be purchased by Toshiba since it is currently amidst some tough times.
