OCZ launches new Agility 3 SSDs

OCZ has added two new SSDs to its product list. The devices belong to the Agility 3 series and will debut in Japan first with capacities of 180 GB and 360 GB.

OCZ’s Agility 3 line-up is right below the company flagship – the Vertex 3 line, but the featured SandForce SF-2281 controller, used in the Vertex 3 line and the cheaper asynchronous NAND flash memory definitely make the Agility 3 a price/performance winner.

The new 180 GB model (part number AGT3-25SAT3-180G) has come here to help fill the void between the existing 120 GB and 240 GB models while the 360 GB (part number AGT3-25SAT3-360G) models does the same thing for the gap between the 240 GB and 480 GB models.

Performance-wise the 180 GB model offers sequential read rates of up to 525 MB/sec and writes at up to 500 MB/sec with 35,000 IOPS 4K random write performance. The 360 GB model also reaches the 525 MB/sec read speed but writes at a slightly lower 495 MB/sec speed while featuring the same 35,000 IOPS 4K random write performance found in the 180 GB model.

In Japan the new OCZ Agility 3 180 GB model will sell for 19 000 Japanese yen which is around 256 USD while the more spacious 360 GB model will retail for 36 000 Japanese yen which is around 447 USD.
