OCZ launches the new Vertex 450 SSD

Indilinx Barefoot 3 M10 controller and 20nm NAND

OCZ has launched a new member of its Vertex SSD lineup, the Vertex 450. To be available in 128, 256 and 512GB capacities, the new Vertex 450 uses an Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller an 20nm NAND.

Compared to the Barefoot 3 controller that we had a chance to see with OCZ's Vector SSD, the new Barefoot 3 M10 can be considered as the tweaked version that also adds AES-256 encryption and power-optimized clock generator that allowed OCZ to come up with a power/cost optimized solution for the mainstream market.

This Barefoot 3 M10 controller paired up with 20nm NAND adds up to impressive sequential performance, high IOPS and long term sustained performance across all file types, claims OCZ. The new Vertex 450 uses a similar 7mm 2.5-inch chassis that we have seen with the Vector SSD and will offer sequential read and write performance of up to 540MB/s and 530MB/s while 4K random read and write performance is at up to 90,000 and 85,000 IOPS.

The 256GB version offers only slightly lower sequential write performance of up to 525MB/s while the rest is the same as on the 512GB model. The 128GB one on the other hand offers slightly lower sequential read and write of up to 525MB/s and 290MB/s while 4K random read and write are set at 75,000 and 70,000 IOPS.

As it was the case with Vector SSD, this one also comes bundled with Acronis cloning software and is backed by a 3-year warranty. The new Vertex 450 SSD lineup should be available pretty soon with MSRP set at US $129.99 for the 128GB one, US $234.99 for the 256GB and US $499.99 for the 512GB model.
