OCZ has launched a new solid state drive in the form of Vertex 4. What is interesting about this drive is that it is based on Indilinx Everest 2 controller. According to the company, the Vertex 4 delivers the industry’s highest input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance for SATA-based drives across a wide variety of application workloads. Powered by its new Indilinx Everest 2 controller platform, featuring a dual core architecture and 400MHz clock speeds, the Vertex 4 eliminates the need for internal data compression, further enhancing drive reliability.
The Vertex 4 features sequential bandwidth up to 535MB/s, maximum random performance up to 120,000 IOPS, and with hard to manage incompressible data, delivers 95,000 4K random read IOPS and 85,000 random write IOPS.
The Vertex 4 also generates best in class latency as low as 0.04 ms for read operations and 0.02ms for write operations.
The OCZ Vertex 4 SSD will be available this month in capacities ranging from 128GB to 512GB.
