Been putting off building that new system until the next generation of SATA III solid state drives start shipping? Well, you can stop dreaming and start building. OCZ this week announced that it's begun shipping its new Vertex 3 SATA III SSDs to its reseller network, so if you can't find one in stock now, you soon should be able to.
"The Vertex 3 series with the SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor has been eagerly anticipated in the marketplace," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. "Our partnership with SandForce has again facilitated the introduction of a solution that sets the benchmark for industry leading performance and reliability."
Armed with SandForce's new controller technology, the Vertex 3 line boasts up to 550MB/s of bandwidth and 60,000 IOPS (4k random write). The Vertex 3 line is available in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities.
At the time of this writing, Newegg shows the 480GB model as in stock, though that will set you back $1,900. Lower capacity Vertex 3 drives are listed on Newegg's product page but are currently out of stock. With this latest announcement, we expect that to change within the next few days.
