First one with Sandforce controller
OCZ has officially unveiled its Vertex Limited Edition SSD. We already wrote about it and although OCZ hasn't revealed more info about the controller, judging by the 100 and 200GB capacity configuration this will be the first series to feature the Sandforce controller.
The new Vertex Limited Edition uses MLC NAND flash memory, has SATA 3.0Gbps interface and features TRIM support. It has read and write speeds of up to 270MB/s and 250MB/s and a sustained write of 235MB/s. It can achieve a max of 50000 IOPS in random read with 4kb file size.
Both drives are already listed with a lowest price set at around €350 for the 100GB and around €700 for the 200GB version. The new Vertex LE has three years of warranty and a MTBF of 1.5mil hours.
The Vertex 2 Pro, or the one that has been previewed at couple of sites should be officially announced at CeBIT.
You can find both Vertex LE drives listed here.
