OCZ's 2.5" solid state disk roadmap for Q1 2010 was leaked today.

In March 2010 enterprise users can expect the Vertex 2 Pro EX and Vertex 2 Pro, both disks feature the new SandForce controller and promise max read speeds of 280MB/s and max write speeds of 270MB/s. The Vertex 2 Pro EX will be available in 50GB, 100GB and 200GB and is expected to deliver 25,000 IOPS (4K random write). The Vertex 2 Pro will ship in 50GB, 100GB, 200GB and 400GB capacities and should deliver 19,000 IOPS (4K random write).

In the same month OCZ will introduce the Vertex 2 for high-end desktop PC users. This model also uses the SandForce controller and promises 270MB/s read speeds, 260MB/s write speeds and 9,500 IOPS (4K random write). It will be available in 50GB, 100GB, 200GB and 400GB capacities.

Later this month we will see the launch of the Solid 2, a Indilinx Barefoot based main stream SSD with max read speeds of 220MB/s, max write speeds of 130MB/s and sustained write speeds of up to 100MB/s. It will ship in 64GB and 128GB capacities.

The company is also working on a $99 solid state disk with 32GB capacity, this undisclosed disk will be based on the Indilinx Amigos controller. The launch of this SSD is expected in February.
