OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Announced
Evolving from the 20nm-based Vertex 450, the new Vertex 460 uses the company’s proprietary Barefoot 3 (BF3) M10 controller with state-of-the-art Toshiba 19nm MLC NAND flash memory to deliver a superior, cost-effective solid state storage solution. With an emphasis on real-world performance across all capacities, Vertex 460 SSDs start fast and continue that way over time, excelling in write speeds without the use of synthetic software-based optimization. The new series delivers excellent sustained and mixed-workload performance across the board whether the data is in compressed or uncompressed formats, as well as an accelerated and more responsive computing experience. Vertex 460 offers up to 545 MB/s sequential reads, 525 MB/s sequential writes, 95,000 4K random read IOPS, and up to 90,000 4K random write IOPS, while featuring sustained 4K random write performance up to 23,000 IOPS.
