OCZ's New Vertex 4 SSD's still yet to hit shelves.

We were made aware of the new Vertex 4 at CeBIT 2012 but we're hoping they'll be here sooner rather than later.

After demonstrating their second generation of Indilinx Everest 2 controller at CES 2012, OCZ showed us it in action at CeBIT 2012 in the form of an OCZ Vertex 4. As with previous models the Vertex 4 is a 2.5 inch form factor SSD with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface and Synchronous MLC NAND Flash memory.

It’s listed specifications are :

·         Sata 6Gb/s Interface

·         Everest 2 NAND Flash Controller Platform

·         Synchronous MLC 2.5-inch design

·         Up to 550MB/s

·         Upto 90,000 IOPS (4k Random Write)*

·         Support for up to 2TB*

*Preliminary specification subject to change.


At CeBIT OCZ demonstrated the performance of the Vertex 4 showing its sequential read and write speeds at 366.94 MB/s and 305.26 MB/s and up to 80,000 IOPS for 4k random reads. Which is lower than the listed speeds however it was said to be running in IDE mode on a un-known SATA Controller so despite no release date on this product we look forward to seeing it soon so we can put it through its paces.
