OCZ's performance crown jewel

According to our info, OCZ's SSD crown jewel, the Vertex, is shipping as of today. This highly anticipated SSD series comes with onboard DRAM buffer and very high performance numbers, which are enough to beat Intel's X25 performance SSDs.

OCZ's Vertex series is available in 30, 60, 120 and 250GB capacities and offers read and write speeds of up to 250MB/s and 180MB/s, respectively. The new Vertex will be shipped with high IOPS optimized firmware, and OCZ will give firmware option updates for specific requirements depending on customers needs. We guess that these will be available shortly and that users will be able to update theirs according to their needs.

All four versions are currently listed and the price goes from €115,96 for the 30GB version, up to €718,74 for the top notch 250GB version. The 120GB version is listed at €370,04, while the 60GB version sells for €217,32. The price might seem steep, but it is actually quite good when compared to Intel's X25 which sells for €714,90 for the 160GB X25-M version and €737 for the 64GB X25-E version.

You can find the OCZ Vertex listings here, and Intel's SSDs can be found here.
