OCZ Vertex 4 SSD tested at CeBit 2012
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
We already heard from OCZ last week that they would be showing off the Vertex 4 SSD at CeBit 2012 and they have duly delivered. The OCZ Vertex 4 is being based off the Indilinx Everest 2 controller and features synchronous MLC NAND Flash memory (SLC can be used for enterprise-oriented models). According to OCZ the maximum performance is up to 550MB/s, although they did not specify read or write individually. The drive features the latest SATA III interface and will reportedly offer up to 90K IOPS.
Other than that it retains the standard 2.5″ form factor and OCZ Vertex SSD design. The live demos showed the AS SSD test returning speeds of 367MB/s read and 305MB/s write on what appears to be a 240GB model (formatted capacity of 221GB). Interestingly, the specification sheet suggests OCZ might get around to releasing a 2TB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD.
