We finally managed to score the last piece of information concerning the new OCZ SSD that has appeared on retail/e-tail listings in few last days, the Vertex Limited Edition. The Vertex LE will be available in 100 and 200GB versions and will offer some quite impressive specifications.

The new Vertex LE is based on MLC NAND chips and might be based on Sandforce controller considering the capacity configurations. It has a maximum read and write speed of up to 270MB/s and 250MB/s. The sustained write speed is set at 235MB/s and can achieve a max of 50000 IOPS (4KB file size - random read).

It has TRIM support (under Windows 7), has a MTBF of 1.5mil hours and features three years of warranty. We already talked about it yesterday but it looks like Alternate.de was a bit wrong about Vertex 2 naming, because the new SSD will simply be called Vertex LE.

The price tag for the cheaper 100GB version starts at €338,91 and climbs up to €409 depending on the country and the retailer/e-tailer, while the 200GB version is priced between €733 and €919. According to our info and the fact that the new Vertex LE is listed all around Europe, it should become available pretty soon, while the Vertex 2 Pro should come somewhere around CeBIT.

The new Vertex LE 100GB can be found listed here, while the 200GB version can be found here.
