OCZ Technology Group, one of the leading suppliers of solid-state drives (SSDs), has announced a new series of SSDs with extreme performance and Serial ATA-600 interface. The new drives are based on the recently announced SandForce SF-2200 SSD controller and also offer whopping number of input/output operations per second (IOPS).

Being among the first SSDs powered by the new SandForce SF-2200 SSD controllers, the Vertex 3 family of drives provide with up to 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write transfer rates and up to 60 000 IOPS (4K random write), a remarkable achievement for a 2.5" SSD. The new drives are based on Micron's 20nm-class NAND flash memory. The OCZ Vertex 3 family of solid-state drives are also among the first SSDs in the industry to use Serial ATA-600 interface.

Also included in the new series is the enterprise-class Vertex 3 Pro which not only delivers industry-leading performance, but is optimized to provide unparalleled reliability, security, and endurance. Featuring the premium SandForce SF-2500 SSD SATA III processor, Vertex 3 Pro SSDs are the ideal solution for clients seeking enterprise-grade MLC (multi-level cell) SSD storage for their server farms and IT infrastructures.

"The new Vertex 3 solid state drive series builds on the success of our previous two generations of products and delivers exceptional performance by utilizing fast synchronous mode 20nm-class MLC NAND flash. These storage solutions feature both the highest sequential speeds available with a SATA-600 SSD and the highest IOPS of any current 2.5" SSD on the market today, allowing us to once again set the benchmark for industry leading SSD performance and reliability," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group.

Vertex 3 SSDs will be available in capacities of 120GB and 240GB, while the Pro edition comes in 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB models. The entire Vertex 3 line features Trim command support to optimize performance over the drive's lifespan and a 3 year warranty to ensure customer satisfaction.
