Thin is in, as it pertains to the tech world, and the current trend is towards increasingly skinny devices. Just take one look at the Ultrabook frenzy, including similar devices that don't carry Intel's official Ultrabook label, but are just as flat and portable nonetheless. Catering to this crowd of thin and light machine owners is OCZ, which is rolling out a line of low profile Vertex 3 solid state drives.
The Vertex 3 LP line features a 7mm high form factor that "easily integrates into the latest mobile computing platforms." Best of all, the shrinkage in physical size doesn't come at the expense of performance or storage space.
These are SATA III SSDs available in 60GB, 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities. Depending on the model, they offer maximum read/write speeds of up to 550MB/520MB per second, and up to 85,000 IOPS of random 4K write performance.
No word on when these will be available or how much they'll run.
