OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPs 240GB ReviewPosted on 2011-10-24 17:58:34 by Thomas De Maesschalck
We had plenty of good things to say about the Vertex 3 when it stormed onto the SSD market earlier this year. You only have to look at its read/write figures to see why. Quite simply, the Vertex 3 managed to harness the power of the Sandforce SF-2281 controller to the greatest extent. Like any SF-2281 controlled SSD it did take time performing incompressible writes (write speeds reporting at less than half that of reads), but 4K random read performance and real-world tasks, such as Windows boot times had us singing high praise for the Vertex 3.
