OCZ Introduces Vertex Series Solid State Drives

OCZ Technology Group unveiled its Vertex SATA II 2.5-inch Solid State Drive (SSD) Series, an offering for enthusiasts demanding the latest technology in this fast-developing sector of the storage market.

The OCZ Vertex Series drives offer 200MB/sec read and 160MB/sec write speeds and feature up to 64MB onboard cache. The Vertex Series will not replace any of the existing series of SSD's but will complement them at the higher end of the performance spectrum.

The OCZ Vertex drives feature a durable yet lightweight alloy housing, and because OCZ SSDs have no moving parts, the drives are more rugged than traditional hard drives. Designed for ultimate reliability, Vertex Series SSDs have an excellent 1.5 million hour mean time before failure (MTBF). All Vertex Series SSD drives come backed by a 2-year warranty.

Vertex series SSD drives are available in storage capacities of 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, and 250GB. MSRPs at the time of launch are USD $129, $249, $469, and $869 for 30GB-250GB models respectively.

Super Talent Announces Enterprise UltraDrive SSDs

Super Talent Technology announced a new line of UltraDrive solid state drives (SSDs) that are twice as fast as the world's speediest SATA hard drives.

UltraDrive LE SSDs are designed expressly for enterprise servers and data centers that require improved performance, reliability and endurance. The UltraDrive LE supports sequential read/write speeds of 230/170 MB per second. While outperforming 10,000 RPM hard drives, the UltraDrive LE uses less power and generates less heat. Based on SLC NAND Flash, the UltraDrive LE is offered in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

UltraDrive ME SSDs are intended for SATA2 notebooks and offer sequential read/write speeds of up to 200/160 MB/s.

  • UltraDrive LE - 2.5-inch SATA-II, SLC, up to 128GB, 230/170 MB/s
  • UltraDrive ME - 2.5-inch SATA-II, MLC, up to 256GB, 200/160 MB/s

UltraDrive LE and ME SSDs will available in January 2009.
