Back in the summer of 2010, we awarded OCZ's Vertex 2 100GB SSD a 9-verdict and our coveted "Kick Ass!" award because of its "blazing fast" performance. We hope to see more of the same from OCZ's newly announced Vertex 3 pro SSD being showed off at CES.
OCZ says its latest MLC-based Vertex variant is built around the next generation enterprise SandForce controller. The result? Staggering performance numbers to the tune of 80,000 IOPS and 550MB/s transfer rates, according to OCZ.
OCZ also has a handful of other products on display, including the follow-up Z-Drive "R3' PCI-Express SSD, which is OCZ's first SandForce-driven PCI-E SSD for Tier-0/1 data applications, as well as the new ZX Series of power supplies with 80-Plus Gold certification. These PSUs will be available in 850W, 1KW, and 1.2KW configurations.
